Snowfall still on track
I still think 6″ to 12″ is a overall good range for much of Minnesota. But this system has the potential to produce some locally higher totals. Yes, there could be some 12″ to 18″ totals by Sunday night.
We may get some light icing in the Twin Cities tonight. But the best potential for a serious coating of glaze ice favors southeast Minnesota.
Wind gusts to 50 mph will cause serious problems with this system.
Stay safe out there!
