Snow in the forecast Sunday night, Monday


Although still more than 24 hours away, the first winter storm of March is on the horizon.

The National Weather Service says specific details are likely to change if the storm shifts farther north, but a Winter Storm Watch is in effect for much of southern and central Minnesota, including parts of the west metro, Sunday night through Tuesday morning.

NWS predicts 6 to 8 inches are possible, the heaviest will fall along the Minnesota River Valley.

The storm is expected to bring snow throughout the day on Monday, WCCO reports.

KSTP predicts snow accumulations will range from 2 to 4 inches in the metro and up to half a foot south and west of the Twin Cities.

The storm will slowly clear Tuesday, according to KARE 11, and the rest of the week appears quiet.

Paul Douglas says March is a very volatile month where warmer temperatures, 40 or even 50 degrees in the Twin Cities, bring wet and sloppy storms. Douglas remains "cautiously optimistic" a parade of storms will ease the drought by late spring.
