BISMARCK, N.D. - North Dakota is headed for another deep freeze.

The National Weather Service is issuing a wind chill advisory for the entire state of North Dakota and parts of South Dakota and Minnesota until noon Tuesday. Wind chills are expected to plunge as low as minus 35 (minus 37 Celsius).

Heavy snow and gusty winds were making travel difficult in North Dakota. A no-travel advisory was issued for northeastern North Dakota, including Grafton, Pembina and Cavalier, due to snow and blowing snow. Some schools and government offices in North Dakota were forced to open late on Monday.

The weather service reports a foot of snow fell in western North Dakota near the Montana border. Minot received 11 inches (28 centimetres) of snow while Williston and Stanley saw 10 inches (25 centimetres).
