Bismarck, Mandan and much of North Dakota are in for another round of subzero temperatures and wind chills. 

Meteorologist Bill Abeling, of the Bismarck National Weather Service, said the cold should last through most of the week for most of the state but southwestern North Dakota.

"We're going to be below zero all the way through Friday now and barely above zero on Saturday, so it's going to be fairly brutal in terms of cold temperatures," Abeling said Sunday.

Saturday may climb up to 3 above zero, he added. 

Meanwhile, wind chills may range from minus 25 to minus 35 Monday into Tuesday.

Thursday and Friday mornings may be the coldest in terms of temperatures and wind chills, according to Abeling -- as low as minus 45 wind chill.

A winter storm warning is set to expire noon Monday for counties north of Interstate 94 in North Dakota. Counties south of I-94 are in a winter weather advisory.

Most of North Dakota’s highways, including I-94 and north of there, are under a no travel advisory tonight. The interstate from the Montana border to Dickinson is closed tonight as well.

This travel alert remains in effect for southeastern North Dakota due to snow and blowing snow creating slippery road conditions and areas of reduced visibility. Cities included in the alert are Jamestown, Valley City, Ellendale, Fargo, Wahpeton, and surrounding areas.
