Case of spring fever anyone? Well, Mother Nature has a reminder for us this week -- it's still winter.

Another late season winter storm system is on track to affect parts of Minnesota late Sunday night through Monday morning. The burst of winter weather is expected to clog up the back-to-work commute.

The National Weather Service in Chanhassen says blizzard or near blizzard conditions will be possible across west central through south central Minnesota Monday, including St.Cloud, Alexandria, Willmar, Redwood Falls and New Ulm.

Wind gusts could reach 50 miles per hour -- which are expected to cause white out conditions south of Interstate 94 and west of Interstate 35, according to the St. Cloud Times.

WCCO's Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak expects the bulk of the fresh snow to fall just prior or during the Monday morning commute. Up to 8 inches of snow could fall in northwestern Minnesota, but the Twin Cities will see an average of 1-3 inches.
