BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Much of the western Dakotas is under a winter storm warning, as heavy snow and strong winds pound the area.

The National Weather Service says central North Dakota could get up to a foot of snow by Wednesday night, with strong winds reducing visibility. The Bismarck area already had 9 inches by late Monday afternoon while Hannover had 13 inches.

North Dakota’s Transportation Department issued a travel alert for the central and northwest, urging motorists to beware of dangerous conditions.

Some schools started late Monday. The annual North Dakota Dairy Convention in Mandan on Tuesday was postponed.

As much as 3 inches of snow had fallen in north central South Dakota by late morning. Up to 5 inches of snow was expected in the northern Black Hills, along with wind gusts exceeding 50 mph.
