A powerful winter storm remains on track to plow through southern Minnesota late Sunday night and through the day Monday.
Snowfall amounts of 5-8 inches are forecast in an area of southwest and south-central Minnesota, where a winter storm warning is in effect from 1 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday. The warning is surrounded by a winter weather advisory, where 3-5 inches of snow is possible.
"A band of precipitation will lift northeast into southern Minnesota late tonight, quickly becoming all snow. This will be a heavy, wet snow with rates of over an inch per hour possible. The snow will taper off during the late morning into early afternoon on Monday," explains the National Weather Service.
