THE LOW PRESSURE CENTER IS FORECAST TO MOVE VERY SLOWLY EASTWARD  
ACROSS NORTHERN MINNESOTA TONIGHT. LIGHT SNOW SHOWERS WILL  
GRADUALLY END ACROSS THE DAKOTAS AND PORTIONS OF MINNESOTA BETWEEN

MINNESOTA. BLOWING SNOW CAN BE LIFE-THREATENING AND MAKE ROADS  
IMPASSABLE, ESPECIALLY IN CENTRAL/NORTHERN NORTH DAKOTA. THESE  
CONDITIONS SHOULD IMPROVE ON SUNDAY AS THE LOW CONTINUES TO WEAKEN  
AND DEPARTS INTO ONTARIO.  
 
THIS WILL BE THE LAST STORM SUMMARY ISSUED BY THE WEATHER
