Blizzard Warning: Extreme Winds Predicted To Blast The Area Until Thursday Morning

If it isn’t snowing, it’s cold. That’s been the story of Central Minnesota’s winter this year, and the trend isn’t going to stop this week.

SCSU Meteorologist Bob Weisman says a blizzard warning is in effect from Long Prairie, St. Cloud, and Alexandria, southward through Willmar, Benson and stretching down as far as Albert Lea. The warning is set for 11 a.m.Wednesday through 3 a.m. Thursday morning.

No new snow is expected but Weisman says blowing and drifting snow with northwest winds of 20-35 miles per hour with gusts to 50 miles per hour will be the problem. This will create snow drifts of up to 3 feet and diminish visibility in open areas.

A coating of ice will also form on roads during times when temperatures are too cold for salt to melt the ice.

Weisman adds that there is a possibility of road closures in some open areas overnight on Wednesday.
