Major Blizzard and Heavy Snow Monday into Monday Night

A big storm will impact the region Monday and Monday night. Low pressure will track from the central plains into Minnesota Monday and Monday night.  Heavy snow will fall west of this low pressure system. Rain will change to snow in the far southern Red River valley and west central Minnesota Monday afternoon...while areas from Valley city to Bemidji and northward should see all snow from this event. The heaviest snow is expected across eastern North Dakota, through the northern and central Red River Valley, and into northwest Minnesota.  In this band, most areas can expect 10-20 inches of snow, with the potential for localized higher amounts.  It will be very windy with northerly wind gusts developing Monday morning in the Red River valley.  These northerly winds of 30 to 40 mph with gusts to over 50 mph will combine with the heavy falling snow to produce widespread blizzard conditions.  This will be a high impact storm, and has the potential for road closures and life threatening conditions if stranded.
