Storm clouds roll over the Minneapolis skyline as seen from the Lowry Avenue Bridge Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2022 in Minneapolis.

Winter weather watches and warnings covered just about every Minnesota county on Tuesday as a potent storm moved across the state, bringing snow, rain, sleet, ice and strong winds that were expected to last through Saturday.

"Just about everybody in the state will be impacted in some way, shape or form over the next few days," said Brent Hewett, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen.

Dozens of schools across west-central Minnesota - where winter storm warnings for 3 to 8 inches of snow were in effect through early and midday Wednesday - delayed starts, closed early, or closed altogether Tuesday. In southwestern Minnesota, freezing rain combined with winds gusting up to 50 mph triggered an ice storm warning through noon, Hewett said.
