It was another weird weather weekend in Douglas County.

A wintry mix of sleet and big pelting flakes of snow descended on central Minnesota on Saturday afternoon and continued off and on into the evening.


Because icy conditions made traveling hazardous, a winter storm warning was posted from Friday night into Saturday night.

Parts of Douglas County received about six inches of new snow.
