If someone were to get caught in this, unprepared, could be kind of scary!! Here's the special statement from the National Weather Service:
Until 9:45pm CST, Tue Feb 11
Action Recommended:Avoid the subject event as per the instructions
Issued by:Minneapolis-MN,US,National Weather Service,
...SHARP TEMPERATURE DROP WEDNESDAY ALONG WITH BLOWING SNOW... AN ARCTIC FRONT WILL SURGE SOUTHWARD ACROSS WESTERN, CENTRAL, SOUTHERN MINNESOTA, AS WELL AS WEST CENTRAL WISCONSIN ON WEDNESDAY. THIS FRONT WILL BE ACCOMPANIED BY LIGHT SNOW. ONCE THE FRONT MOVES THROUGH YOUR AREA, EXPECT A RAPID DROP IN TEMPERATURES IN AN HOUR OR TWO. THESE RAPIDLY FALLING TEMPERATURES COULD LEAD TO A FLASH FREEZE ON AREA ROADWAYS. THIS IS A CONDITION WHERE A SMALL AMOUNT OF SNOW THAT MELTED PRIOR TO FRONTS ARRIVAL, OR WATER, WILL QUICKLY FREEZE AND CAUSE BLACK ICE TO FORM. PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS CONDITION AND DRIVE ACCORDINGLY. IN ADDITION, STRONG NORTHWEST WINDS WILL DEVELOP BEHIND THIS FRONT LEADING TO SIGNIFICANT BLOWING AND DRIFTING SNOW, ESPECIALLY IN AREAS THAT RECEIVED HEAVY SNOWFALL ON SUNDAY.
