A sizable band of snow is expected to creep into the Wright County area tonight, dropping measurable amounts of precipitation into Tuesday morning – the first “real” snowfall the area has season in more than a month.
However, it’s the arctic winds following that storm sometime Tuesday afternoon that have National Weather Service officials issuing a hazardous weather warning for much of the St. Michael-Albertville area, a blizzard warning in effect for the areas south and west of Wright County.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for this area from 3 a.m. overnight tonight to 9 p.m. Tuesday, March 3 as the snow makes its way across the region. The winds are expected to arrive in the area some time around the lunch hour, clocking in at 40 mph or more, officials forecast.
Here’s the alert from the NWS Twin Cities:
