BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Strong winds and blowing snow are making travel hazardous in much of northwestern and south-central North Dakota.

The National Weather Service says a blizzard has developed across parts of western North Dakota, from Crosby to Williston, Beach and Dickinson Monday afternoon. Blizzard conditions are expected to spread eastward to Jamestown by late Monday, and conditions will not improve until Tuesday evening.

Forecasters say the storm is expected to dump between 10 and 13 inches of snow on parts of north-central North Dakota. Parts of northwestern into south-central North Dakota could see up to 9 inches of snow.

Officials say no travel is advised in northwestern and south-central North Dakota. Interstate 94 from Dickinson to Jamestown, except for the Bismarck-Mandan area, was closed in both directions Monday evening.
