Winter Storm Ending
What to Expect / Impacts
- Snow will diminish to either flurries or a very light snow by midnight across the Upper Mississippi River Valley region.
- Freezing drizzle that developed earlier this evening in the wake of the snow appears to be on the wane. Patchy freezing drizzle is possible until midnight, mainly south of Interstate 90.
- Buffalo, Clark, Dodge, Jackson, Olmsted, Taylor, Trempealeau, Wabasha and Winona counties - Total snowfall 6 to 10 inches (Winter Storm Warning)
- Interstate 90 and 94 corridors across southeast Minnesota and west central Wisconsin- Total snowfall 5 to 7 inches (Winter Storm Warning)
- Northeast Iowa and extreme southwest Wisconsin- Total snowfall 1 to 4 inches
- Falling to zero to 10 below zero for Monday morning, coldest west of the Mississippi River
The low pressure system that brought snow and freezing drizzle to the region has been weakening and shifting off to the east into Lake Michigan. A band of light snow stretching from the Twin Cities across southwest into central Wisconsin will dissipate through the night as the system continues to track off to the east. In the system's wake, arctic air will rush into the Upper Mississippi River Valley region late tonight and Monday morning, creating below zero wind chills for parts of the area.
