Winter Storm 'Bearing Down' on Upper Midwest

The National Weather Service says a blizzard warning will replace the winter storm warning at 11 a.m. on Sunday.

We know the snow is coming.

On Dec. 8, weather forecasters updated their winter storm warning, with information about potential blizzard conditions in parts of Minnesota. 

By the afternoon, at 3:36 p.m., the National Weather Service updated their statement, saying that "a major winter storm is bearing down on the Upper Midwest."

According to the updated statement, a blizzard warning will replace the winter storm warning at 11 a.m. on Sunday. Blizzard conditions will blow through Western Minnesota Sunday afternoon and evening. 

Weather service forecasters say that some wind gusts may exceed 45 miles per hour on Sunday, making travel conditions "nearly impossible."

Patch first reported on potential for Minnesota's first snow storm on Friday, when a winter weather watch was issued. That watch turned into a warning on Friday evening.
