UPDATE: St. Cloud Could Receive 6-10 Inches of New Snow

Even more snow is expected in St. Cloud Wednesday than originally predicted.

St. Cloud State University Meteorology Professor Bob Weisman originally forecasted 2-5 inches of snow. However, due to the storm slowing down and shifting to the south, we are expecting between 6 and 10 inches of snow in the St. Cloud area.

Weisman says as of 11:30 a.m. snow is falling at about a half inch to an inch an hour and visibility is extremely low, making the evening commute difficult.

The snow is falling in St. Cloud and eastward, including Long Prairie, Little Falls, Mora, Foley, and Princeton.

Weisman also says the heaviest of the snowfall will begin around midday and end around 9:00 p.m. Wednesday which will slow down road crews and make driving conditions tough.

Stay tuned to KVSC for updates on the snowfall.

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. (AP) - Jury selection is underway in the trial of a central Minnesota man who claims self-defense when he fatally shot two teenagers in his home.

Six jurors were chosen Monday on the first day of the murder trial of 65-year-old Byron Smith of Little Falls. He faces two counts of premeditated first-degree murder for the 2012 killings of 17-year-old Nick Brady and 18-year-old Haile Kifer.

The St. Cloud Times reports 130 Morrison County residents received jury duty notices for the trial. Prospective jurors will fill out a questionnaire that asks them about their thoughts on gun control.

Smith claims he was defending himself when he shot the teens after they entered his home. But authorities say he went too far, shooting them multiple times after they were no longer a threat.

Winter may be over but the snow just keeps on coming.

St. Cloud State University Meteorology Professor Bob Weisman forecasts 2-5 inches of snow tomorrow with a high around 32-35 degrees.

Different forecast models vary when the storm will begin, but it is predicted to start between 1:00 a.m. – 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning and continue until mid afternoon.

Weisman says warmer weather will begin Sunday or Monday with highs in the 60’s which will push the warm air over the top of the colder air producing a chance of rain.

Epilepsy Foundation Of Minnesota Cancels Balloon Event After Criticism On Environment Risks

Facebook Twitter

04/11/2014 - 12:10 PM

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - The Epilepsy Foundation of Minnesota has canceled plans to launch 60,000 balloons after the event was criticized for its potential effects on the environment and wildlife.

Before announcing the balloon launch to celebrate its 60th anniversary, the foundation said it checked with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency and Department of Natural Resources and was not informed of any legal and environmental concerns.

The MPCA and DNR later said that while state laws don't specifically address balloon releases, they would be considered littering, which is illegal.

The St. Cloud Times says the foundation instead is encouraging people to get creative with their free balloons and send in photos and video of how they are honoring their loved ones with epilepsy.
