Another Spring Snowstorm

Prepare to go through the motions of yet another dumping of snow. We should be getting used to this, right? A strong low moves into the upper Midwest bringing heavy snow and gusty winds. The snow begins to move in just after dawn, light at first, but increasing in intensity through the morning. Expect snow covered roads by midday.

The worst of it will be falling from lunchtime through this evening. Plan on a difficult evening commute with snow covered roads the main threat. Areas with the best chance at seeing a foot or more line up from Burnett County to Price County including cities like Siren, Hayward, Cable, and Butternut. The northern edge of the heaviest snow stretch from Brainerd to the Twin Ports.  A half foot is still possible here, but totals quickly drop off further north.

The storm wraps up tonight from west to east, though probably not ending entirely until after sunrise Thursday. We warm back near 40° by Friday with 40s and 50s expected this upcoming weekend. A bit of rain is possible Saturday night, but it should be gone by Easter Sunday.

Drive safely out there!
