Heavy snow in the Northland through Monday morning, icy roads in central Minnesota

Once again, no snow for the metro area.
Publish date:

Snow is expected to rapidly accumulate in northeast Minnesota Sunday night through Monday morning, with as much as half-a-foot possible in Duluth and even more along the North Shore. 

Away from the North Shore, lesser amounts of 3-7 inches are expected where a winter storm warning is in effect from 8 p.m. Sunday through 11 a.m. Monday.

The winter weather advisory is in effect due to an expected wintry mix, which will cause slick roads across central and parts of northern Minnesota. 

"Travel will become hazardous across these advisory area, especially on untreated roads," the National Weather Service says.

Here's a GIF of the simulated future radar (the HRRR model) from 8 p.m. Sunday through mid-morning Monday, clearing showing mostly rain south of the Interstate 94 corridor, if any precipitation at all. 


According to the NWS Twin Cities, temperatures will actually rise into the upper 30s to near 40 degrees in the metro area overnight, paving the way for another warm January day on Monday with a high of 40. 

Strong northwest winds will usher in colder air Monday night into Tuesday morning, and southern parts of Minnesota could pick up an inch or two of snow. The rest of the week looks pretty dry, according to the NWS.
