"It will snow all day, tapering off mid to late after-noon. It's a fairly fast-moving storm."

Ewens said travel to any point south, "St. Cloud, Minneapolis, even Fergus Falls" will be difficult today.

"There's a fairly sharp cutoff of snow, so travel north shouldn't be so bad," he said.

A cold front is right behind the snow, bringing "pretty brutal wind chills for this late in February," Ewens said.

By morning, Park rapids will see 16 below air temperatures, Ewens said, with wind chills as low as 35 below.
