Earlier:

Strong wording from the NWS La Crosse about this storm. Will most likely go down as one of ourĀ biggest snowstorms of at least modern records.

“GREATLY CONCERNED WITH SERN MN BECAUSE OF THE HIGH SNOW AMOUNTS IN PLACE…AND THE STRONG WINDS EXPECTED. DRIFTS COULD BE 4-6 FEET IN THAT AREA BY 3 AM. THIS WILL BE A HIGH IMPACT EVENT FOR ANYONE TRAVELING…WITH EMERGENCY SERVICES PROBABLY STOPPED DURING THE
EVENING HOURS FROM THE HIGH WINDS AND BLOWING SNOW WITH WHITEOUT.”

Updated warnings for the area, as of 2:30pm Saturday"

The worst of this storm is just getting going…no joke. Wind gusts are starting to pick up and there is more heavy snow that will fall. Things will continue to worsen this afternoon and evening.

All of our counties are under a Blizzard Warning through Sunday morning.

    Just drove down Highway 52 from MSP to Rochester. Visibility is bad. Where the wind is blowing patches of roadway are clear but anywhere there is something that blocks the wind – trees, buildings, etc the roads are snow-covered with deep ruts and drifts.

  2. Brenda Appel says:

    How much in Freeborn county? Why is Albert Lea always left out?

  3. Steph says:

    Brenda – we rely on viewer reports and the National Weather Service reports. There are rarely any reports from the Albert Lea area that we get. So we’re not leaving you out on purpose. You guys, at my best estimation, probably got about 8-12″ in that area.
