WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DULUTH MN
1116 AM CST MON DEC 22 2014

AROUND MID MORNING AN AREA OF LOW PRESSURE WAS CENTERED IN
NORTHEAST SOUTH DAKOTA. SKIES WERE MOSTLY CLOUDY THROUGHOUT THE
STATE. MOST OF SOUTHERN MINNESOTA HAD LIGHT RAIN OR DRIZZLE
OCCURRING...WHILE MOST OF NORTHERN MINNESOTA SAW A MIX OF RAIN AND
SNOW. TEMPERATURES WERE MAINLY IN THE MID 30S...EXCEPT FOR
PORTIONS OF THE ARROWHEAD WHERE READINGS WERE IN THE LOW 30S.

TODAY THE LOW WILL MOVE SOUTHEASTWARDS INTO WESTERN IOWA. THIS
WILL RESULT IN A MIXTURE OF RAIN AND SNOW ACROSS NORTHERN
MINNESOTA. ACROSS SOUTHERN MINNESOTA RAIN IS EXPECTED UNTIL THIS
EVENING...WHEN RAIN WILL CHANGE OVER TO SNOW. THE CHANGE OVER TO
SNOW IS DUE TO THE COLDER AIR WRAPPING INTO THE SYSTEM AS IT MOVES
SOUTHEASTWARDS. HIGHS IN THE MID 30S ACROSS THE NORTH AND THE
UPPER 30S ACROSS THE SOUTH.

TONIGHT ANY RAIN IS EXPECTED TO CHANGE OVER TO ALL SNOW ACROSS
SOUTHERN MINNESOTA...WHILE NORTHERN MINNESOTA WILL CONTINUE TO SEE
SNOW. PRECIPITATION WILL BE LIGHT AND ACCUMULATIONS FROM TODAY AND
TONIGHT SHOULD BE UP TO AN INCH OR TWO IN SPOTS...WITH THE HIGHEST
ACCUMULATIONS EXPECTED ALONG THE HIGHER TERRAIN IN THE ARROWHEAD.

HEAVIEST AND STEADIEST SNOW IS EXPECTED. MOST LOCATIONS WILL SEE
ANYWHERE FROM 1 TO 2 INCHES OF SNOW...HOWEVER IN THE ARROWHEAD
SOME LOCATIONS MAY RECEIVE UP TO 3 INCHES.
