  • Winter Storm Watch

The storm, which is coming across the U.S. Midwest, has already dumped 15 cm to 25 cm of snow in the Bruce Peninsula as it tracks eastward.

A strong spring storm system is expected to affect a large portion of the central U-S this weekend and could bring heavy snow as far north as central Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin. The National Weather Service Thursday night included the Twin Cities metro area in a winter storm warning that will run from 1 a.m. Saturday to 1 a.m. Sunday.

Here's the timing: freezing rain Saturday morning, sleet Saturday afternoon, back to freezing rain Saturday night, then finally sleet again.

Warm weather forecast - is summer on the way?
Higher clouds spread over the forecast area this evening as heights lower and Pacific frontal system approaches. A second wave of snow will likely drop several more inches from Saturday afternoon through Sunday.

The best chances for impacts from sleet or freezing rain will be in the Winter Storm Watch zones and the chances run through Sunday morning.

In addition, strong northeast winds will gust to near 60 km/h giving local blowing snow and reduced visibilities. Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches, with localized amounts up around 6 inches A light glaze of ice is also possible.

You sure wouldn't know it by looking outside tonight, but a potential blizzard lies ahead for much of Siouxland from Friday night into Saturday. In addition to the heavy snow, strong winds gusting between 40 to 50 miles per hour will bring the possibility of blizzard conditions to west central Minnesota.
