FREEZING RAIN AND SNOW TONIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY MORNING
A complex storm system will bring a period of freezing rain and snow to the Northland tonight through Tuesday morning. Portions of central Minnesota east into Burnett County have the best chance of receiving more than 8 inches of snow. Freezing rain is possible from western Itasca County south into the Brainerd Lakes region with ice accumulation up to one-tenth of an inch possible. The combination of snow and freezing rain will create snow covered and slippery roads, which will slow the evening commute Monday and the morning commute Tuesday. This is a very dynamic system and future forecast updates may move the area of heaviest precipitation and adjust amounts.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 9 AM MONDAY TO NOON CST TUESDAY
WHAT — Light, to occasionally moderate, snow is expected. Snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches, with localized amounts up to 8 inches, are expected.
