Yet another blizzard is heading our way. Much of the Red River Valley is already in a blizzard warning and conditions are expected to deteriorate as wind and snow move into the region Friday night.

Temperatures were in the 30s for most of the day Friday but conditions outside are quickly changing as an alberta clipper has moved into the valley, making its presence felt.

People enjoyed warm weather and light snow Friday. The snow started around noon and came ahead the cold front hitting the region tonight, bringing with it significant winds and cooler temperatures.

Winds are expected to be 30 to 40 miles per hour, with gusts up to 50 miles per hour. Combine those gusts with the expected two or more inches of snowfall and driving conditions will become dangerous Friday night.

Greg Gust with the National Weather Service said, "If you add another inch or two into that mix then you get blizzard conditions for a few hours but ground blizzards straggling on both ends. So it's almost like flash blizzard."

Another winter storm system will hit the Red River Valley Saturday night and Sunday. This system could bring with it, 2 to 4 inches of snow and winds.
