Crow Wing County in winter weather warning

Residents can expect snowfall and freezing drizzle

We are part of The Trust Project.

CROW WING COUNTY – The National Weather Service has upgraded Crow Wing, southern Aitkin, Carlton/South St. Louis, and Price Counties to a winter storm warning for the evening of Tuesday, Jan. 3.

A heavy band of snow is ongoing and pushing north, leading to quickly reduced visibility and snow covered roads. This will likely impact the evening commute for the Brainerd lakes area.

Freezing drizzle and light snowfall is expected to continue overnight, with light to moderate snowfall possible through the day Wednesday, Jan. 4. Snow should come to an end Wednesday evening into Thursday morning.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
