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 today, Dec. 9. Plows were out in Plymouth starting around noon.

The snow is here.

And it keeps on coming.

In fact, the city of Plymouth has declared a snow emergency alert and asks for residents' patience as the plows were to go out around noon on Sunday. 

The National Weather Service updated their statement this weekend, 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.
