Minneapolis-St. Paul and the surrounding suburbs have been added to a Winter Storm Watch for Monday into Tuesday.
Areas within the watch can expect snow accumulations in excess of 6 inches, the National Weather Service-Twin Cities says. The highest snowfall totals are currently forecast to be along the I-35 corridor north of the Twin Cities, where more than a foot of snow is possible.
Most of the metro area will get 6 inches with as much as 10 in some locations. At this point, the northern metro has a better chance at the higher amounts.
- 1-2 inches per hour are possible
- 6+ inches for areas in the watch
- Blowing and drifting snow from 30 mph winds
Timing is still fluid, so it's possible that both the morning and afternoon commutes are impacted.
The initial wave of precipitation could start as soon as Sunday night in the form of rain or freezing rain before it changes to snow on Monday.
The forecast could change significantly, so check back for a fresh update Sunday morning.
