Major Winter Storm Blasting Northern Minnesota
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - Northern Minnesota is getting hammered by a major winter storm.
Snow began falling in many areas Saturday and is expected to continue into Sunday night. Many cities are already reporting several inches of snow.
The Minnesota State Patrol has responded to dozens of traffic crashes and mishaps and roads were either partially or completely snow-covered as of 1:00 pm Sunday.
The storm will not affect southeast Minnesota but the cold weather that is trailing the system will. Falling temps are expected across the region Monday and high temperatures Tuesday will barely hit 20-degrees. But highs in the 30s are expected to return by Thursday.
