The heaviest snow has ended as drier air pushes in aloft from the southwest! However, an upper low will track eastward slowly through tonight, which will cause light snow and drizzle to redevelop through the day and persist occasionally through tonight.
The winter storm will continue to depart the region overnight, with snow showers tapering off by midnight. Northwest winds will remain strong with gusts of 25 to 30 mph causing areas of blowing snow across the region.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for parts of central Minnesota - including Stearns and Benton County. It will be in effect from 10:00 p.m. this (Friday) evening through midnight on Saturday.
