Commute Alert: Allow Extra Time, as Monday's AM Drive Will Be Slick

December 10, 2017 09:04 PM

While it won't produce a significant storm in the Twin Cities, a clipper moving down from Manitoba overnight Sunday is expected to muck up the Monday morning commute. 

KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas says the clipper is carrying a mix of snow and freezing drizzle that will start to fall in the metro sometime after midnight and continue possibly until noon Monday.

The rain-snow mix will keep snow accumulations under an inch in the Twin Cities, but will slicken the roadways just in time for the morning commute. Temperatures will be in the 20s prior to that, and by 6 a.m. it will be 32 degrees, Yuhas says.

Once the storm passes, the winds will pick up and the temperature will fall, reaching into the mid-20s by 6 p.m. and to an overnight low of 13 degrees by Tuesday morning. 

Twin Cities roadways could remain slick much of the day Monday, Yuhas says.

The National Weather Service has issued a hazardous weather outlook ahead of the clipper for much of the state. Portions of north-central and northeastern Minnesota could see 1-3 inches of snow, and areas to the west of Interstate 94 could see freezing drizzle after midnight.
