Biggest Storm of the Season Hits Minneapolis

It's the biggest snowstorm to hit the Twin Cities area in years, according to the Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press.

Forecasters predict over a foot of snow to accompany the hazardous conditions and freezing weather.

According to the Star Tribune, local police already reported around 200 accidents, but no deaths as of Saturday evening.

The Pioneer Press reports that the National Weather Service predicts winds of over 30 mph. “Long-duration winter storm in progress," the National Weather Service said. “The worst is yet to come…do not be fooled.?

I found it interesting that the Star Tribune's article focused more on how the storm affected local businesses and people, whereas the Pioneer Press went into more detail about the actual weather system itself and quoted meteorologists and even included a paragraph concerning what readers should do about catching flights at the airport.
