Blizzard conditions continue to slam the upper Midwest and northern Plains as a powerful April storm plows through the northern U.S. With extreme winds and incredible snowfall amounts up to 2 feet in some areas, this storm could be one for the record books.
Blizzard warnings have been issued for part of the Plains and Midwest, including the Minneapolis/Twin Cities region.
Snow amounts could be 1-2 feet for many regions, plus winds in excess of 30 mph. Gusts could be as high as 55 mph for some of the hardest hit locations in the blizzard warnings through the weekend. In areas outside the blizzard conditions, dangerous winter weather will occur with snow and ice. The ice will be significant for parts of Michigan and the UP.
WeatherNation affiliate KARE reports that hundreds of accidents occurred overnight in Minnesota, with at least one death reported. The Blizzard conditions were also reported on Friday across parts of Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, and South Dakota. You can always see more on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
