URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
308 PM CST Fri Jan 19 2018

...Winter storm to affect central and southern Minnesota and
Western Wisconsin Sunday night into Monday...

.A strong storm system will bring an area of moderate to heavy
snow across a portion of southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin
Sunday night, spreading east through Monday. Snowfall totals of 6
to 10 inches are possible by the time the storm exits the region
Monday evening. At this point, the heaviest snow will fall south
of a line from Redwood Falls through the Twin Cities toward
St Croix Falls and Rice Lake. Other areas that may see heavy snow
include Fairmont, Mankato, River Falls and Eau Claire.

A wintry mix with a period of freezing rain is possible in south
central Minnesota near the Iowa border, then toward Eau Claire,
leading to slick roads. Winds will be around 20 to 35 mph which
will cause blowing and drifting snow, especially in open country.
Winds will begin diminishing Monday night. Remember, this is
still a Winter Storm watch, and the track of the heaviest snow may
change as the forecast is updated over the next couple of days.
Be prepared for difficult driving conditions if you have travel
plans across central or southern Minnesota and western and
northern Wisconsin.
