Winter Storm Ukko Predicted to Snarl Monday Commute
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm advisory for Golden Valley Sunday evening.
The National Weather Service anticipates upwards of six inches of snow to fall on Golden Valley Sunday night into Monday morning.
The storm will drive a powerful cold front through Minnesota by Monday afternoon, and the National Weather Service anticipates wind gusts up to 50 mph.
The winds will blow the new snow around during Monday morning's commute, potentially creating near white out conditions—particularly south of I-94 and west of I-35.
From the National Weather Service:
Tonight and Monday, a powerful winter storm will track across northern Minnesota. This will send a strong cold front across the region, with a few inches of snow expected ahead of the front and strong west to northwest winds expected in its wake. Blizzard or near blizzard conditions will be possible across west central through south central Minnesota Monday. It will be cold in the days following this system, with temperatures next week running around 20 degrees below normal.
