The winter storm that brought sleet, snow and strong winds to Minnesota and western Wisconsin is slowly pulling away.

As of Saturday morning, blizzard warnings continued over portions of western Minnesota and the Dakotas, with Winter Weather Advisories over portions of central and northern Minnesota.

The accumulating snow is ending in most spots, but strong winds are causing severely reduced visibilities and a lot of drifting snow in many areas.

Here in the Twin Cities, occasional flurries can be expected this New Year’s Day, and winds of 18 to 26 mph will keep windchills well below zero.

Less wind and a cloud/sun mix are on tap for Sunday with light snow possible very late in the day.

Hope you have a great 2011!
