Attention, early morning commuters: A fast-moving storm system is set to impact the Twin Cities area overnight into midday Monday. That’ll make for a messy morning commute.
The unrelenting storm has spread about 2 feet of snow in northeastern Minnesota continued for a third day Wednesday. The heavy snow and ice has contributed to hundreds of traffic accidents around Minnesota and was cited by authorities in at least five fatal crashes since Monday.
We all know Minnesota winters aren’t easy, especially driving through all the ice and snow. This week’s weather has reminded some of us it’s time to change our tires. But who really needs snow tires? Good Question.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says it’s ready for anything Mother Nature decides to throw at us Tuesday evening.
The snow is already forming and heading towards the Twin Cities — and by the looks of it, it won’t just be a dusting.
After three months of a whole lot of nothing, Minnesotans are looking at this winter with a raised eyebrow. So, why has winter arrived so late?
It’s one of the biggest problems with a mild winter. All it takes is a simple snowfall, and winter driving skills look really rusty.
Earlier this week, winter arrived in North Dakota. Now, it’s Minnesota’s turn. Ready or not, the first measurable snowfall is on its way.
We have three more shots of snow over the next six days. Our last system only kicked out 2.6 inches here in the Twin Cities, and you can expect similar amounts over the next few days.
