Minnesotans were being greeted by dangerous wind chills this (TUE) Christmas eve morning, and that will be followed by accumulating snowfall this afternoon and tonight. A wind chill warning is in effect for most of the Minnesota River Valley until Noon, with a wind chill advisory elsewhere, with the feels-like readings expected to be between 25 and 45 below zero. The National Weather Service in Chanhassen says a winter weather advisory is also in place until 9pm for central and southern Minnesota, with snowfall reaching Alexandria and Willmar by midday, the I-35 corridor by mid-afternoon, and the Wisconsin border by tonight. Forecasters expect the snow to fall over a five to nine hour period, with a total of two to four inches. Gusty winds could lead to areas of blowing and drifting snow that may present a challenge to holiday travelers. Keep it tuned to KNUJ for updates on the Winter Weather Advisory and other weather-related happenings this Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
