The National Weather Service is saying that heavy and blowing snow is very likely for much of central and western Minnesota Saturday through Sunday, including St. Cloud.

Shifts in the forecast track are still ongoing, so it is too early to say exactly where the heaviest snow will fall, and what the highest amounts will be.

Continue to monitor the latest forecasts, especially if you have travel plans this weekend.
