Blizzard Warning In Effect

Blizzard conditions are expected.

Two storm-related deaths occurred early Saturday.

Elsewhere in the state, high winds are expected in most regions with gusts up to 50-60 miles per hour.

"Travel will be risky to impossible later today and tonight across the northeast plains", the weather service said in a Friday morning tweet.

Minnesota is under a historic storm warning, with very heavy snow falling at a rate of up to 2 inches per hour. Most interstates are closed and the DOT is recommending no travel across most of eastern South Dakota, parts of southwestern Minnesota and northwestern Iowa. Although considerable ice remains on the bay, it is likely to get shifted around by the wind. These storms brought damaging wind gusts and were causing widespread tree downings and power outages.

The broad line of storms is expected to move east Saturday night and into Georgia, Florida and the Carolinas, the National Weather Service said. High winds may cause blow over of high profile vehicles.

"We're not seeing a huge mess at this point", she said.

Authorities closed several highways in southwestern Minnesota, where no travel was advised, and driving conditions were hard across the southern half of the state.

Risky fire weather conditions in Oklahoma contributed to wildfires that forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes near Woodward, about 125 miles (200 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City.

"If they would open in it up tonight I wouldn't go anyway", says Larry Hissong a truck driver "you got too many drivers parked waiting for it to open soon as they open they all take off and 9 times out of 10 they're gonna have a wreck somewhere". Locally higher amounts will be possible in Northwest Kansas.

A few clouds will linger overnight, allowing temperatures to drop into the low 30s to start our day on Sunday. Philadelphia hit 82 degrees.
