NWS Minneapolis (Southern Minnesota)

...SNOW AND BLOWING SNOW EXPECTED TO IMPACT TRAVEL SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY IN WISCONSIN WITH BLIZZARD CONDITIONS POSSIBLE IN MINNESOTA... .Snow and blowing snow are expected to impact travel Saturday night into Sunday. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for much of the southern half of Minnesota and parts of western Wisconsin. The heaviest snow is expected to fall along and east of I-35 Saturday evening and Saturday night. Expect a narrow band 4 to 8 inches of snow from Albert Lea, through Red Wing Minnesota and Ladysmith Wisconsin. Northwest winds will increase Saturday night into Sunday, with gusts as high as 40 to 45 mph. This will lead to significant blowing and drifting snow, and reduced visibilities. The strongest winds will be in Minnesota, and blizzard conditions are possible. Meanwhile areas to the west of I-35 will see less snow, but we still expect northwest wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph starting after midnight Saturday night and lasting into Sunday afternoon. There is a very deep snowpack across the region, and significant blowing and drifting snow is likely to develop. This could lead to whiteout conditions, making travel very difficult or impossible in the open areas of western, central, and southern Minnesota. A winter storm watch has been issued for possible blizzard conditions Saturday night into Sunday. ...WINTER STORM WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY AFTERNOON...

* WHAT...Blizzard conditions possible. Total snow accumulations of one to three inches possible. Winds could gust as high as 50 mph.
