...Light snow and Blowing Snow Heading In This Afternoon, Followed By Very Cold Wind Chills... .An incoming Arctic cold front will move in this afternoon bringing with it light snow and increasingly strong and gusty northwest winds. These winds will produce areas of blowing and drifting snow across open, unsheltered areas of southeast Minnesota and northeast Iowa. Hazardous conditions will likely develop due to reduced visibility and slippery roadways. Much colder temperatures then filter in tonight through Friday, which will result in wind chills ranging from -20 to -35 degrees. Any residual moisture left on roadways may freeze and create icy conditions as well. ...WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM 3 PM THIS AFTERNOON TO MIDNIGHT CST TONIGHT... ...WIND CHILL ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO NOON CST THURSDAY...
