Up to two feet of snow is expected in places across the northern plains this weekend.
A powerful winter storm is hitting some of the same places that were hit hard by last week’s historic blizzard.
The National Weather Service has issued blizzard warnings and winter storm watches and warnings for many parts of the Northern Plains.
Heavy, wet snow could accumulate to about a foot in eastern Montana, northeast Wyoming, western South Dakota and western North Dakota.
The NWS says snow rates are expected to exceed 2 inches per hour.
Snow won’t be the only thing residents will have to worry about; strong winds will also accompany this storm. Winds will be blowing up to 75 mph creating near whiteout conditions.
High winds and snow forced the closure of Interstate 90 from South Dakota to Wyoming until Sunday morning.
Along with the wind and snow, officials are concerned about dangerous travel conditions with low visibility and blowing snow. They say that travel will be very difficult, if not impossible.
