Between one and two feet of snow is slated to hit the Northern and Central Plains before moving to western Minnesota through Thursday night.

Areas to the east of Laramie, including Cheyenne, are under a Winter Storm Warning and Blizzard Warnings have been issued for the Nebraska panhandle.

The National Weather Service has expanded a Winter Storm Watch to now include Stearns County and the surrounding counties of Benton, Sherburne and Wright.

Travel could be very hard and snow could significantly reduce visibility. The advisory area will likely see a mix of snow, rain, sleet and ice over the next few days. Twelve to 18 inches of snow are expected in the area Wednesday and Thursday. Rain will turn to snow Wednesday. The Watch is in effect from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning.
