Near blizzard conditions possible Sunday and Monday

Our new found snow cover is both a gift and a curse. It's wonderful for outdoor enthusiasts and winter lovers alike with lush snow mobile trails, fresh powder on the slopes, and a prettier look to our normally dismal looking landscape that takes up our cold season. But the snow certainly has a dark side too; it can make for treacherous, if not impossible travel. While falling snow is by far the most frequent "road killer" as highways become ice skating rinks, a simple windy day with plenty of already fallen snow can have the same affect. With strong enough winds, snow particles can get launched into the air causing reduced visibility, icy roads, and in some cases, nearly impossible travel. This is what could occur late Sunday into Monday across much of the state. Right now, it looks like the western half of the area will be worst off with the potential for 50 mph winds which can launch copious amounts of snow into the air and lead to white out conditions. Meanwhile, the metro could face challenges of our own with gusty winds, reduced visibility, and slick roadways. The map above pretty much says it all. But don't expect conditions to be bad as soon as you wake up Sunday morning.

Right now, it looks like a general ramp up of rough conditions can be expected through the day Sunday from northwest to southeast. Check out potential wind gusts through the day Sunday…

Monday morning will likely be the most affected of the upcoming workweeks commute with blowing and drifting snow and likely some snow and icy patches. The winds will slowly calm through Monday afternoon but Mother Nature will take her time.

While we are expected some additional light snow to fall during this potent clipper, the bulk of the impact on the area will be from blowing snow versus the actual amount of snow, which will likely stay under 2 inches for the majority of the state.
