A "Winter Storm Warning" is still in place until 6 p.m Saturday evening. The main issue moving forward will be blowing and drifting snow.
Snowfall accumulations will be impacted by a surge of dry air and warm air aloft. This will cause a slight mixing with precipitation and could change the precip type from snow to more of a wintry mix/freezing rain/freezing drizzle. This would limit our snow totals drastically for the evening but could make driving conditions even worse.
Snowfall totals will range from 3-6" for most of southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa. If mixing doesn't occur tonight we could see higher totals in some isolated areas. The main issue will be winds moving forward.
Winds are expected to gust anywhere from 30-40 mph overnight and through the afternoon on Saturday. Please drive with caution Friday and Saturday afternoon especially on rural roads/interstates.
