The National Weather Service's advisory is from 3 p.m. Sunday to 3 a.m. Monday.
Golden Valley is in a Winter Weather Advisory starting at 3 p.m. Sunday. The National Weather Service says snow accumulations could reach 2 to 4 inches, with as much as 5 inches in some areas. Unfortunately, that means the snow will coincide with people traveling to and from Super Bowl parties.

Chances for snow will be sporadic this week in Golden Valley, with high temperatures in the low 30s and lows in the single digits.

Hennepin Sheriff Rich Stanek reminds parents and caregivers to keep children away from thin ice.
Editor's Note: The following is a Hennepin County Sheriff's Office press release.
