A blizzard warning remains in effect in southwestern Minnesota until 6pm tonight, although state officials have now lifted “no travel” advisories and road closures in northwestern Minnesota. They’re urging motorists to still use extra caution because of blowing and drifting snow, including in south-central Minnesota where strong winds are expected to continue this evening and overnight.
The Weather Service has issued a wind chill warning for northern and western Minnesota through tomorrow morning, with a wind chill advisory for southeast and east-central Minnesota. Expected lows tonight 25- to 30-below in the northwest, to 10- to 17-below in the southeast, with wind chills 30-below to 50-below. Temperatures are still in the 20s and 30s in southeast and east-central Minnesota, but elsewhere the mercury is taking the plunge, with 17-below at last check in Crookston.
