Uh oh: Next wave of winter-wearying weather on the way

It's a winter when Minnesotans must be grateful for small favors. The next blast of slippery and bitter weather will roll in on a holiday, when many people don't have to commute and the roads aren't full of school buses.

The cleanup from the Saturday snowfall and snow emergency was barely done before the next wintry wave was predicted. KARE reported that 409 vehicles were ticketed and towed from Saturday night into Sunday morning during the snow emergency in the city of Minneapolis. That followed the weekend dump of two to five inches.

At least it was warm while they waited in line to retrieve their cars at the impound lot.

KSTP reports Sunday's sunny and pleasant weather will give way to another malicious blast from Old Man Winter overnight. Some spotty freezing drizzle is expected ahead of another arctic front, pushing temperatures back into the deep freeze by Monday morning. And there's more from where that came from. By Monday night, it's back to the bitter, with temperatures as cold as they've been in two weeks. FOX 9 reports that by Tuesday morning, the cold snap will produce dangerous low temperatures and wind chills of 20 to 40 below zero. It's not expected to push into the single digits until Friday.

It's not just in the metro area. The Northland's News Center in Duluth forecasts Monday morning lows will be near -10 and the high may only hit the goose egg. WDAZ in Grand Forks, N.D reports temperatures in the Red River Valley are expected to drop to single-digits below zero overnight and into Monday morning and won't climb much higher in the day. In the southern part of the state, KTTC in Rochester is also expecting that arctic cold front to slide through the area late Sunday, with some patchy freezing drizzle putting a glaze on southern Minnesota roads. Temperatures will continue to fall, bottoming out in the -10 to -15 range by Tuesday morning, and highs Tuesday afternoon struggling to hit zero degrees.

Good thing we didn't take those emergency kits out of our cars.
