Snowstorm to hit Minnesota Monday night, 3-6 inches expected

Author:

Six inches of snow – in some places more – is set to fall across much of Minnesota on Monday night and Tuesday as November comes to a wintry end.

The National Weather Service is predicting a winter storm will bring between three and six inches of the white stuff across most of the state, including the Twin Cities metro, which will start off Monday evening.

And the west-central, southwest and southern parts of Minnesota could get even more than six inches.

The NWS is warning that state roads will have a covering of snow and that visibility will be poor, making conditions difficult for drivers.

This was the case on Thanksgiving, when the Twin Cities saw its first snowfall on Thanksgiving, with 1.3 inches falling in the metro, which was the first measurable amount this season.

This caused problems on the roads, with the Star Tribune reporting that 133 crashes had occurred across the state, one of which proved fatal, with 31 resulting in injuries.

Most of these happened in the southern part of the state, with the fatal crash happening on Highway 52 between Rochester and Chatfield.

It's been reported this week that global temperatures for October were the warmest in recorded history, and Minnesota has itself been experiencing unseasonable warmth, with the NWS saying that the period between Sept. 1 and Nov. 26 was the second warmest on record.
