The National Weather Service is cautioning travelers that an arctic front could bring blizzard conditions to the Red River Valley on Friday evening.

Wind chills are predicted to range from 25 degrees below zero to 45 below by Saturday morning. Wind gusts could top 40 mph.

The conditions are expected to continue in the area through the weekend as the Alberta Clipper system pushes on toward northeastern Minnesota.

The weather service says that although only about an inch of fresh snow is expected, when combined with high winds and existing snow it could be enough to create a blizzard.

The blizzard watch issued today means there's a potential for falling or blowing snow with strong winds and extremely poor visibility, including whiteout conditions.
