Major Winter Storm To Impact The Area Monday

We will see the snow fly first in southern MN sometime around, shortly after daybreak Monday. IA, you will be dealing with rain still, thanks again to the warmer air to our south. Everyone will see snow by the noon hour, with this trend lasting overnight Monday.

Heavy snow will be possible at times, from 11 AM to 4 or 5 PM Monday. Winds will ramp up as well, out of the NE as the day goes on, causing visibility and therefore travel issues throughout the day. Most of the snow will fall Monday, with big-time varying totals.

Drawing a line from Fairmont to Mankato to the southern Metro, mainly along/north of HWY 14, will see the better chance at a foot or more. From HWY 14 to I-90, 7-10". From I-90 to the MN/IA border, 3-7", and for most of our northern IA communities, a Trace to 3". As we've mentioned before, this is an extremely tight gradient, meaning the slightest shift in the storm's track could alter these greatly! And keep in mind, this will be the heavy, wet snow, not the light fluffy snow we've had.

Blowing snow a concern still heading into Tuesday morning, with the snow and winds easing the second half of the day. Travel will remain tricky especially early on.

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy. Areas of fog and rain. There's a very slight chance we could see freezing rain at times heading towards daybreak. A few snowflakes mix close to sunrise as well for MN. Wind: NE 10-20 mph.

Monday: A wintry mix changes to snow quickly by sunrise. Heavy snow possible at times from 12 - 5 PM, along with a strong NE wind. Temperatures falling throughout the day. Very difficult travel conditions expected. See above for snowfall totals.

Tuesday: Slight chance for snow, mainly before daybreak, then clearing. Difficult travel continues. Highs in the lower 20s.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the middle 20s.

Thursday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 30s.

Friday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the middle to upper 30s.

Saturday: Cloudy. Slight chance for rain/snow mix. Highs in the lower 30s.

Sunday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 20s.
