'Siberian Express' Blitzes Plains

From United Press International

A blast of cold air dubbed the "Siberian Express" pushed into the Northern Plains today, carrying blustery near-blizzard conditions into North Dakota and Montana.

Drivers were warned of near-blizzard conditions--snow and northerly winds of 20-35 m.p.h.--in western and central North Dakota. Blowing and drifting snow was also a hazard in Montana, where localized blizzard conditions were expected in the mountain passes. A winter storm watch was issued for portions of South Dakota and Wyoming.
