Winter Storm Watch Sunday Night
The National Weather Service has put out a Winter Storm Watch for Sunday night into Monday, cities included in the watch are, Minneapolis, Blaine, St Paul, Stillwater,
Hutchinson, Gaylord, Chaska, Shakopee, Hastings, Redwood Falls, New Ulm, St Peter,
Le Sueur, Faribault, Red Wing, St James, Mankato, Waseca, Fairmont, Osceola, Rice Lake, Ladysmith, Hudson, River Falls, Prescott, Menomonie, and Chippewa Falls.
A winter storm will bring a band of moderate to heavy snow late Sunday evening. There may be a brief break in the snow early Monday morning, but snow should increase again by mid-morning with snowfall totals of 5 to 8 inches possible by the time the storm
exits the region Monday evening. At this point, the snow will fall from Mankato through St Paul Minnesota to Ladysmith Wisconsin.
A wintry mix of freezing rain is possible south of the heavy snow band. This could lead to slick roads as well. Winds will be on the order of 20 to 30 mph which will also cause some blowing and drift. The track of the heaviest snow will likely change as the forecast is updated over the next couple of days, but at this point be prepared for difficult driving conditions if you have travel plans across central or southern Minnesota and western
and northern Wisconsin.
As always check back for more and any delays and cancellations can be found here. And now you can download the free Power96 Faribault app to your Android or I-phone and take us with you.
