Winter Storm Watch

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
356 AM CST Sun Jan 21 2018

...MAJOR WINTER STORM HIGHLY LIKELY MONDAY ACROSS
SOUTHERN/EASTERN MINNESOTA INTO WESTERN WISCONSIN...
...VERY TIGHT SNOWFALL GRADIENT EXPECTED OVER THE METRO SO THE
WINTER STORM WATCH CONTINUES FOR THE METRO...

.A portion of the Winter Storm Warning has been upgraded to a
Blizzard Warning from Mankato to the south and west, including
Fairmont and St. James. The Winter Storm Warning was expanded
slightly southeast. A Winter Storm Watch remains in effect from
Gaylord through the Twin Cites metro and Balsam Lake as this area
will be close to a very tight snow gradient.

A strong storm system will bring an area of heavy snow across
south central and east central Minnesota into western Wisconsin
by early Monday morning. Snowfall totals of 8 to 14 inches are
likely by Monday evening in the warning area. Strong winds with
gusts up to 40 MPH during the heavy snow period will lead to
blizzard conditions in a portion of south central MN. Farther
east, winds will be in the 20 to 30 MPH range and cause blowing
and drifting snow.

A wintry mix with a period of freezing rain is also possible
Monday morning from Albert Lea toward Eau Claire, resulting in
light ice accumulation.

Be prepared for difficult driving conditions if you have travel
plans across central or southern Minnesota and western and
northern Wisconsin.
