Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- Blizzard-like conditions could fall on the area this weekend, making driving difficult.

Winds could possibly reach 30-50 miles per hour. The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reminding people to check on the roads before going out on the road this weekend.

Blowing snow is already reducing visibility in parts of northwest Minnesota. Cold, windy weather could make driving dangerous throughout the weekend.

Truck driver Matt Lyson says windy roads can make for a thrilling day at the office.

Matt Lyson with B&D Transport says, "It's definitely an adventure. You're sitting there, you've got the white-knuckle grip, trying to hold it on the road, and worry about everybody else not, either cut you off, or cut in your lane. It's definitely an adventure."

Coming up at six, we'll tell you all about the challenges semi-truck drivers face on the roads in cold and windy weather.
