BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota's Department of Transportation is warning drivers in the western and central parts of the state to travel carefully due to snow and fog.

Officials say blowing snow is reducing visibility and beginning to accumulate in the passing lanes of four-lane highways and on rural two-lane roads. They advise drivers to watch road conditions and slow down as needed.

The travel alert affects Bismarck, Williston, Minot (MYE'-not), and surrounding areas.
