Complicated storm system to move through Minnesota Sunday, Monday

The heaviest snow is currently forecast to fall up north.
Publish date:

Another winter storm is forecast to move through Minnesota Sunday and Monday, but the worst of it should stay in central and northern Minnesota. 

According to the National Weather Service in Duluth, "total snowfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches are expected across the Northland, with locally higher amounts possible along the lakeshore." 

Northwest Minnesota will also get hit, and a winter storm watch is in effect for the first row of counties along the Minnesota-North Dakota border where 4-9 inches could fall.

The Twin Cities and parts of southern Minnesota look to be spared by much snow at this point, but rain changing over to freezing drizzle could cause slippery roads on Sunday evening through Monday morning. 

The rain/drizzle will eventually change over to snow, but significant accumulations in southern Minnesota's aren't expected. 

The storm track can still shift, but this is the latest simulated future radar from one computer model, showing what could happen from 1 p.m. Sunday through 1 p.m. Monday. 


This forecast could change significantly over the next 36 hours, so stay tuned for updates.
