BISMARCK, N.D. - Bismarck received 8-10 inches of snow Saturday while some areas in northwest North Dakota received 18 inches of snow.
Ken Simosko, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service, said there are no longer any advisories in place.
However, those driving should be careful, he said. The temperature is well below freezing and there was freezing rain before the snowfall, he said.
“Even if they cleared some snow off, there’s still a layer of ice,” he said. “Don’t use cruise control; don’t go too fast.”
Simosko said there could be areas of light snow showers Sunday and gusty winds of 20 to 30 mph. In some areas of open country, blowing snow could reduce visibility to one mile or less.
“Those (areas) will be more patchy than widespread,” he said.
Simosko said the wind chill is very cold throughout the state. Temperatures could dip to 25 degrees below zero in northwest North Dakota on Sunday night, he said.

However, there shouldn’t be any significant snowfall this week, he said.
“By and large, it’ll start cold and warm up (over the week),” he said, explaining that there will be subzero temperatures Monday morning but will return to the 30s by Friday.
“So we get a break. That’s good. Give people time to shovel off the snow,” he said.
There may be some light snowfall at the southern North Dakota border Tuesday, Simosko said. The snowfall probably won’t accumulate too much and will be far south of Interstate 94, he said.
