The Northland was warned about another Winter Storm, and although many of us woke to mild temperatures and some sunshine, winter reared its ugly head once again. Snow started to fall in the western portion of our viewing area before lunch and quickly moved eastward.
Snow will be heavy at times and continue through the night. Travel will be difficult. Here are snowfall totals as of 3:30 pm Friday.
