Blizzard for southern Minn.; more snow in store for Twin Cities

 


A blizzard warning issued Sunday by the National Weather Service stretched across virtually all of southern Minnesota, from Redwood Falls through New Ulm, Fairmont, Mankato and Albert Lea.

Whiteout conditions, caused by strong winds combining with new snowfall and the remnants of what fell last week, affected areas west and south of the Twin Cities from Sunday night into Monday morning.

Travel along Interstates 90 and 35 was forecast to be especially precarious as the current snowpack got a new layer of snow while wind gusts of up to 55 miles per hour promised to create “widespread blowing snow and whiteout conditions,” according to the weather service.
