Snow ending; travel conditions expected to improve
Snow is expected to taper off this morning and the skies should be partly cloudy by Christmas Day, making travel a bit easier for the rest of the holiday weekend.
High temperatures for Christmas Day are expected to be in the teens with light northwest winds, according to the National Weather Service.
Snow accumulation varied in west central Minnesota but was just a few inches in most areas. Roads were snowpacked in some areas as a result of this snowfall. The storm brought only light winds with it, which kept travel conditions from deteriorating further.
The low Saturday night is expected to be around zero. Sunday is forecast to be partly cloudy with a high around 15.
Temperatures are expected to increase slightly during the coming week, with lows around 10 and highs in the mid-20s from Monday through Wednesday.
Partly cloudy skies are predicted until Thursday, when the Weather Service lists a 20 percent chance of snow and light freezing rain.
