BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Another winter blast is bearing down on North Dakota.

The National Weather Service says a strong arctic cold front will hit the state late Tuesday and Wednesday, bringing snow and wind gusting up to 30 mph. Blowing snow is expected to reduce visibility for motorists.

Snowfall amounts are expected to range from an inch in the north to 4 inches in the south, with possibly up to half a foot in the southeast.

Wind chills are forecast to drop as low as minus 35 degrees late Wednesday into Thursday morning. Another round of accumulating snow and frigid arctic air is expected Friday.
