Winter Storm Argos is already producing blizzard conditions in parts of the Northern Plains. It will spread heavy snow and strong winds into the Great Lakes and interior Northeast into this weekend. Argos is currently impacting South Dakota, Nebraska, northwest Iowa and Minnesota. Wind gusts from 30 to 40 mph have been widespread across this zone of heavy snow early Friday, leading to whiteout conditions in some rural areas outside of larger cities.
Blizzard warnings continue in parts of eastern South Dakota, southeast North Dakota and western Minnesota. Winter storm warnings stretch from Nebraska to northern Minnesota.
The storm is not currently affecting any Post Offices, but may still impact delivery to these areas. Current anticipation is 24-36 hour delay for inbound and outbound shipments.
