February 5, 2019

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Forecasters say the winter storm that dropped a foot of snow in northwestern North Dakota through Monday morning will keep temperatures in dangerously cold territory for the remainder of the week.

The National Weather Service says the coldest temperatures are expected Wednesday night into Thursday when wind chills could drop to as much as 50 degrees below zero (minus 45 Celsius).

Some relief is in sight for the weekend with temperatures expected to move to near or above zero.
