High winds are the problem after a night of steady snow

Gusts at 40 mph will create drifts

March 10, 2019 - 8:27 am

You could say the predicted weekend snow storm was delayed by rain.

All that rainfall during the daylight hours kept the Twin Cities snow-free until the sun went down Saturday night.

Then it came, dropping up to half-a-foot in some areas of the metro.

It was much worse west of the Twin Cities, where up to a foot of wet, heavy snow is reported in several areas.

Sunday brings windy conditions, with gusts of about 40 miles per hour creating blowing snow and drifts, coupled with slick roads, that'll make it tricky to drive.
