Winter storm creates hard travel conditions

We may have escaped a white Christmas, but hold on as we head into the week.

A snow band is forming in southeastern North Dakota and into western Minnesota and is expected to continue southeastward.

26, Winter Storm Eboni could bring near-blizzard conditions to parts of the Plains, including both Dakotas.

Accumulation appears light across the Front Range at 1-3 inches, but prepare for a snowy morning commute.

Temperatures should remain mild into the early morning hours Thursday with highs in the 30s by 4 a.m. and wind gusts as high as 20 mph.

The Taliban have reportedly celebrated the news of a US troop drawdown as a victory for the insurgent group. Najib Alokozai, a journalist in eastern Nangarhar, downplays the drawdown.

A quick and potentially heavy burst of snow will drop a couple to a few inches of snow on metro area roads Wednesday evening and overnight, which is what prompted the Winter Weather Advisory. Snow is expected to return for Sunday and Monday, according to Environment Canada.

Forecasts are calling for ice and from 2 to 12 inches of snow Thursday.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for the central and south Cascades through Thursday morning.

Travelers are warned to keep up to date with weather forecasts and to know what the weather will be like at their destination, Edwards says.

Gusty winds may cause blowing and drifting mainly through Thursday night but also extending into Friday. Snow will gradually taper off on Friday. The heavy snow and high-powered winds "could create very risky travel conditions", Edwards says, with some areas experiencing near-blizzard conditions and winds between 20 and 30 miles per hour. The National Weather Service has warned that residents in the Plains should "expect hazardous travel conditions Wednesday into early Friday, with heavy snow and strong winds making roads risky".
