You’d have to go quite a distance to get out of the blizzard conditions followed by brutal wind chills that the National Weather Service is forecasting for late Wednesday possibly through Christmas Eve.  Caleb  Grunzke  at NWS-Chanhassen says:

“It’s going to be affecting pretty much everywhere in the central United States….  The whole state of Minnesota is going to be affected, and in fact this very cold air will be traveling down to Texas and Oklahoma.”

The Weather Service is advising Minnesotans who can’t leave for their holiday destinations by early tomorrow (Wed) to postpone any travel until Saturday.  They say driving conditions could be life-threatening and air, bus and train travel will also likely be affected.
