A historic winter storm across the northern Plains is finally winding down.
Additional light snowfall will continue on Friday, but the heaviest snow has ended.
In North Dakota, travel remains widely shut down, as snowdrifts as high as 7 feet have been reported.
However, the heavy snowfall totals will stick around for a while.
Temperatures across these areas will remain below freezing until the middle of next week.
In the southern U.S., an active period of some stormy weather is forecast for Easter weekend.
The severe potential for these storms is limited, but isolated severe storms will be possible each day.
Excessive moisture may be the biggest concern with these storms.
Totals of over 2 inches will be widespread, while local amounts may reach 4-5 inches.
