Storm Packs Punch for Monday

Hope you like the mild air and the melting snow.  If not... fear not.  Our upcoming storm for late Sunday into Monday looks to replenish most of the dwindling snowpack.  Winter Storm Watches are now out for most north of a line from Winona to Northwood to Algona.  This will be the area focusing on the worst impacts from our upcoming storm.

For now, get used to the gray.  Most of Saturday/Sunday will be spent under it.  Areas of fog and even drizzle/light rain are possible.  The temperatures will be key and we may even see some light icing, as a result, to lead off this storm.  Best timeframe to look for this will be on Sunday.

That wintry mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow will carry on Sunday night through sunrise.  Icing up to 1/4" is possible.  After daybreak, we see a transition from northwest to southeast over to snow. At times the snow will be heavy.  The wind will swing around to the north and begin gusting towards 35 mph as well.  This will make travel difficult from that point into Tuesday morning.

A sharp cutoff in snowfall totals will be observed.  Areas north of I90 stand the best chance at picking up the heaviest amounts of snow.  Drifting south of US 18 in Iowa, totals may be very little.  In all, I see a potential range across the local area from as little as an inch to as much as 9".  Given we will be the battleground between various types of precipitation be prepared for some subtle shifting to occur in the coming days.

Tonight: Partly cloudy. Lows in the middle 20s. Wind: SW 5-15 mph.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy.  Areas of fog.  Highs in the middle 30s.  Wind: Lt & Vrb.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. Areas of fog, drizzle and rain in the afternoon. There's a chance we could see freezing rain at times. A few snowflakes mix in overnight. Highs in the middle 30s.

Monday: Mostly cloudy. Wintry mix changes to snow quickly.  Windy. Temperatures falling throughout the day.  Difficult travel.

Tuesday:  Slight chance for snow, mainly before daybreak, then clearing.  Difficult travel continues.  Highs in the middle to upper 10s.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the middle 10s.

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