UNDATED - The National Weather Service has issued a Blizzard Warning for Friday for Stearns county, and areas to the west.  Benton County is still in a Winter Storm Warning, and Sherburne County is listed in a Winter Weather Advisory.

Heavy snow will continue for much of the day from western Minnesota to northeastern Minnesota. The rain/snow line will march east through the afternoon.
