6-plus inches of snow expected Sunday to Tuesday in Minnesota


Another blast of snow appears to be headed to western and southern Minnesota as well as the Twin Cities metro area, which could result in six or more inches of snow in different parts of the state, the Pioneer Press reports.

The National Weather Service in Chanhassen said the snow will start Sunday night and will begin to accumulate by Monday morning.

The NWS issued a Winter Storm Watch Saturday for the pending snow event.

NWS meterologist Lisa Schmit said to expect about six inches Monday, and added that because the snow's duration, it will likely affect both morning and evening commute times.

Since the snow is expect to last into Tuesday, Schmidt said, accumulation amounts could reach the double digits.

KARE 11 and KSTP are both predicting at least 6 inches of snow, while WCCO is predicting 6 to 8 inches. FOX9 noted the Winter Storm Watch, but has not yet made any predictions.
