BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Residents of eastern North Dakota and northeastern South Dakota are dealing with blizzard conditions again.

The National Weather Service says wind gusting to 40 mph is blowing around snow on the ground and reducing visibility for motorists. A small amount of new snow also is possible in some areas.

Transportation officials early Wednesday advised motorists to use caution in eastern and south central North Dakota. A no travel advisory was issued for northeastern North Dakota but lifted midmorning.

Many schools in the region delayed or canceled classes.

Forecasters say it also will be cold — the wind chill will be dropping to as low as 40 degrees below zero, creating life-threatening conditions into Thursday morning.

It's the second blizzard in the region in the past week.
