Winds pick up and drop visibility on County Road 101 at the start of a three-day snowstorm hitting the area days before Christmas in Medina, Minn., on Wednesday, Dec. 21, 2022.

An ill-timed snowstorm that will unleash blizzard conditions moved into Minnesota on Wednesday morning, and its effects will be felt through the first part of the holiday weekend.

Snow started falling across southwestern Minnesota before sunrise and arrived in the Twin Cities by mid-morning, triggering snow emergencies and school closures - giving some students a jump-start on winter break. The Hopkins school district canceled classes Wednesday both because of the weather and because many bus drivers are out sick, the district wrote to families.

The storm could drop 5 to 9 inches of snow from Madison, Minn., in the western part of the state to Mankato to the Twin Cities to Eau Claire, Wis.
