ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - As Minnesotan's in St. Cloud and beyond are waking up to plenty of snow on the ground and roadways after a spring storm dumped more than three inches overnight, forecasters are saying the worst of this storm for Central Minnesota is behind us.
While we are still facing the potential for a few more flakes in the early morning hours a winter storm warning scheduled to last until 1 pm today was downgraded to a winter storm advisory that expired at 7 AM.
The national weather service says snow will end this morning and not last into the early afternoon as first forecast. Snow totals are only expected at 5 inches in the St. Cloud area when all is said and done as most of the heavy snowfall pushed off to the east.
The Twin Cities and Western Wisconsin still find themselves under a winter storm warning with snow expected to fall there up until noon.
Travel can still be an issue with some wind gusting up to 25 miles an hour kicking up some and blowing snow. And remember, this is a heavy wet snow, so called heart attack snow, so take extra care when shoveling.
Temp: 61°F (16°C)
Wind: 8 SW
Weather: Mainly Cloudy
