The National Weather Service in Duluth issued an update at 3:30 pm on the winter storm that has begun to roll into Minnesota. Not much has changed with the most recent update regarding snow totals, wind gusts, and ice accumulations, and the same Winter Storm and Blizzard warnings are still in place. 




The biggest change is an increase in confidence of ice accumulations on Monday for much of the area. 



Snow has already begun throughout much of the County, and is expected to continue through Tuesday. 


Road conditions are starting to worsen as the heavy snow moves in, although plows are out and working on snow removal.
