Confidence is growing for a major winter storm to take aim at Minnesota, the eastern Dakotas and northwest Wisconsin this weekend, with areas of the upper Midwest likely to be buried in heavy snow Saturday night and Sunday.
As darkness sets in and the moisture cools , freezing rain becomes a concern for travelers.
Late this afternoon a burst of snow, reducing visibilities to a half mile, was moving through central Minnesota. This snow band should pass through the Twin Cities between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
Heavy snow may accumulate more than six inches north and west from Fargo to Baudette later tonight and Thursday.
