A major winter storm is expected to affect a large part of the upper Midwest on Sunday, dropping some of the heaviest snow totals here in Central Minnesota. The timing of the snowfall will be overnight tonight and through much of the day on Sunday.
The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Chill Advisory from 3:00 p.m. today (Wednesday) through noon tomorrow. Temperatures will fall behind the front to well below zero across central and western Minnesota, with readings hovering within a few degrees of zero elsewhere by evening.
Well, winter is here, there's no doubt about that. It was the first winter storm of the season and as usual there was huge number of accidents around the region. While driving back from Fargo to St. Cloud today down I-94 I encountered at least 10 separate accidents. Pictures after the jump.
