Strong Winds Prompt Blizzard Warning, Wind Advisory
UNDATED — The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for western parts of our listening area — including Stearns County. It’s in effect until 8:00 a.m.
Then, we’ll have a wind advisory from 8:00 a.m. until noon today. Sustained winds will remain high through the morning. That will cause blowing snow.
So far here in St. Cloud, our strongest wind gust has been 43 miles an hour. That happened at 2:00 a.m. this (Saturday) morning. Wind gusts in the mid-50’s were common last night and during the overnight in western Minnesota.
And we’ve officially had an inch of snow with this system.
