URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
344 AM CST Sat Jan 20 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 through east central Minnesota
into 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 far
southern Minnesota near the Iowa border, then toward Eau Claire,
leading to slick roads. In addition, northeast winds between
20 to 35 mph will cause blowing and drifting snow and whiteout
conditions at times, 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.  Be prepared for difficult driving
conditions if you have travel plans across central or southern
Minnesota and western and northern Wisconsin.
