Severe winter weather may be on the way this weekend

While it may not be of the severity of the storm expected in New England this weekend, much of Southwest Minnesota could be in store for some severe winter weather over the weekend.

The National Weather Service office in Sioux Falls issued a Blizzard Watch for a large swath of Southeast South Dakota and Southwest Minnesota. The watch runs from early Sunday morning through late Sunday evening.

According to the NWS, a winter storm is moving into the region from the northwest. The extent of the snowfall will depend on the air temperature in the area as the storm approaches.

A wintery mix of precipitation is expected to begin Saturday night and change to all snow by Sunday morning and afternoon. Estimated snowfall ranges from around five inches in the immediate Windom area to upwards of 10-plus inches in an area from Marshall west to Mitchell, S.D.

But the most dangerous part of the storm is expected to move into the area behind the initial front when strong winds from the north move in Sunday afternoon, creating the potential for hazardous travel. Winds between 25 and 40 miles per hour are projected, which could create whiteout conditions with the newly-fallen snow.
