Winter weather advisory in effect as burst of snow hits state

Updated: December 09, 2019 09:50 AM

A burst of snow affected the morning drive Monday and subzero temperatures are on the way.

Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said periods of snow and freezing drizzle will continue throughout the morning Monday. Roughly 2-4 inches of snow are expected to fall during that time.


Then, Barlow said temperatures will fall into the teens by late afternoon. Overnight, temperatures will drop below zero degrees.

Cold air will linger through Tuesday into Wednesday, with daytime highs barely making it to, or just above, zero degrees, Barlow said.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory for more than a dozen counties. The advisory is in effect until 12 p.m.

Meanwhile, the wintry storm system is expected to generate 10 inches of snow or more near Lake Superior. The port cities of Duluth and Superior, Wisconsin are still digging out from more than 20 inches of snow last weekend. 

KSTP Traffic Reporter Josie Smith said there were "very long travel times" throughout the metro Monday morning, due to slick road conditions and decreased visibility from falling and blowing snow.

Metro Transit reported that by 9:45 a.m., 52 percent of its buses were delayed about 15 minutes due to slick roads.
