3:45pm update: Graphic to the left is the latest we have for headlines for Monday’s event. Advisories & Warnings will go into effect Monday morning, and end around noon on Tuesday.
Graphic will be up later today, but in the meantime, a Winter Storm Watch will be in effect Monday morning through late Monday for the following counties:
Goodhue, Rice, Dodge, Wabasha, Winona, Olmsted, Mower, Houston, Fillmore, Vernon, Trempealeau, Buffalo, La Crosse.
Snow will start during early Monday morning and persist through the night. My thinkings right now are for 5-8″ for the area in the watch, with 3-5″ outside of the watch. Some freezing drizzle may mix in as well, especially outside of the watch. This snow will be a bit heavier, not the fluffy factor of the recent storms. It will also be a bit breezy, but we shouldn’t have the blowing and drifting issues of recent either, because of the thicker snow. Snow should taper off Tuesday morning. The heaviest will be falling during the afternoon and evening hours on Monday.
More snow is expected on Thursday…and keep in mind…we’re only 3.6″ shy of the #1 spot for snowiest Decembers in Rochester. Cheers!
P.S. The Twin Cities are also included in the Watch. For those headed to the Vikings game…keep this in mind.
