It’s not over, yet.
Another pair of weather systems will bring measurable snow this week, with snowfall beginning this afternoon and lingering through the Tuesday morning commute.
Welcome back from Spring Break, St. Michael-Albertville families!
It’s no joke – the Wright County area could see up to 8 inches of new snow by Tuesday. And for those who drive into the Twin Cities metro for work, both the morning and evening commutes could be tough sledding.
Here’s the “Special Weather Statement” from the National Weather Service in Chanhassen:
