WEATHER STORY: Snow totals so far have ranged from 5-15″ according to National Weather Service storm reports. Northern News Now weather watchers reported a range of 4 to 16″. Another 1-2″ is still possible until 8 am Monday morning. A Winter Weather Advisory is in place for Minnesota until 1 AM Monday. It will stay in effect until 4 AM for Wisconsin and the U.P. Once the storm passes early Monday, we get a couple of sunnier days before precipitation returns on Wednesday. It may be warm enough then for rain and snow mixes the first day which could shift to snow Thursday and Friday and end as flurries next Saturday.

SUNDAY NIGHT AND EARLY MONDAY MORNING: Snow should wind down to flurries after 7 pm. The sky will slowly clear a bit in Minnesota and that will help things cool. Lake effect will keep snow going in Wisconsin and the U.P. The overnight low should be near 10. The wind will be NE 10-20 mph.

TUESDAY: The high pressure cell will be more powerful on Tuesday. The sky should become mostly sunny. The low will be 3. The high will be up to 30. The wind will be S 5-15 mph.

COMING UP: If Monday turns out calm and a little cooler than normal, Tuesday will be mostly sunny and close to normal for temperatures. On Wednesday, it will become warmer than normal and that will create the potential for a rain and snow mix that may slick up the roads. Models are not in agreement as to how much snow may fall Thursday and Friday. Please tune into the Northern News Now newscasts on CBS 3 and KBJR 6 at 10 pm Sunday for the latest look at the data.
