Snow stops, strong winds stay on Sunday

February 23, 2019 10:30 PM

Snow will stop falling across the metro area early Sunday morning, but strong winds will make it unpleasant to travel and be outside.

KSTP Meteorologist Sam Ryan said snow totals could range from two to eight inches in the metro area, with the lighter totals coming in the northwest portion and heavier totals in the southeast metro.


Winds will blow from 25 to up to 50 mph, likely setting up white-out conditions in some areas with the potential for heavy drifting.

Many counties across the metro and other portions of the state are under weather advisories through 6 p.m. Sunday.

The blowing snow could also lead to more road closures, as a portion of Interstate 90 was closed Saturday night and many parts of southern Minnesota were under a No Travel Advisory.

The high for Sunday will be in the upper teens, but that wind will make it feel much worse in some areas.

While Sunday afternoon will offer a small break from the snow, chances for a little more snow return on Monday and Tuesday.
