There is a lot of traveling planned for many Minnesotans this weekend as they head home from Thanksgiving festivities with family and friends. The weather has decided it will not cooperate with those travel plans.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Northern Minnesota and Wisconsin and a Winter Storm Watch for Central and Southern Minnesota and Wisconsin from Friday night through noon on Sunday.

UPDATE 11/30 9:45am: The St. Cloud area could see 6-10" of snow by the time all is said and done. And making it even worse is the freezing rain that is possible along with possible strong winds.

Travel conditions are expected to be very difficult and dangerous so if you can avoid traveling, please do so. Travel conditions should be much improved by Sunday afternoon/evening.

Stay safe out there.
