Winter storm arrives and brings inches of snow across state

Updated: January 18, 2020 07:56 AM

The predicted winter storm finally arrived Friday night into Saturday bringing along inches of snow across the state. Four to six inches landed across the Twin Cities area Friday night into Saturday morning, with up to another inch possible as it continues to snow into the late morning. The higher snow totals rolled in just northwest of the Twin Cities. A winter storm warning continues until 6 p.m. Saturday night. 

Temperatures on Saturday are expected to hit a high of 26 degrees just before noon before falling all the way to 8 degrees by late afternoon. Due to high winds of 15 to 30 mph, the wind chill could feel like negative 10 to 20 degrees. 


The high winds after a large snow total are also expected to lead to blizzard-like conditions for parts of the state. Waseca was forced to pull their plows off the roads Saturday morning due to "ZERO" visibility and recommended no travel. 

Overnight temperatures are forecast to stay very chilly with the low hitting negative three degrees, and a wind chill down to negative 28.
