Monday will be windy and there will be periods of rainfall and snowfall throughout the day, according to Chief Meteorologist Ken Barlow.
Barlow said snow will hold off until after 9 a.m. in the Twin Cities, with 1 to 2 inches likely.
Outside of the Twin Cities, Barlow said more snow is expected in Wright, Scott and Dakota counties by Monday night. Barlow said it’s possible up to 6 inches of snowfall could accumulated in those areas.
Meanwhile, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning and winter weather advisory for parts of the state Monday.
Additionally, several schools throughout the state reported delays or closures Monday.
Barlow said a storm that hit Colorado this past weekend is moving east, causing Monday’s rain/snow mix in Minnesota.
Looking ahead, Barlow said sunshine will return by Tuesday afternoon and the rest of the week, so far, is expected to be mild and storm-free.
