Here’s an update on what’s going on with the storm:
1. Major winter storm underway for the area. Snowfall totals have been upped to account for heavier precipitation along the I-90 corridor, northwards to just south of the Twin Cities, and into western WI. 16-20″ will be possible for this area. Lesser amounts into northern Iowa (8-12″)
2. The winds will pick up ferociously. They will begin to gust to 40-50mph after the noon hour. Visibility, poor already, will continue to sour.
3. Temperatures will drop like a rock this afternoon and especially evening. Wind Chills will approach -30° overnight.
4. Snowfall rates this late afternoon/evening could approach 1-2″ per hour.
5. Goodhue county has been added to the Blizzard Warning.
Stay tuned. I have to go shovel my driveway out, in the meantime, so I can get to work today….
