5:15 am
the average for this time of year is low 30's. isolated showers to the north and another pocket to the south and west. the metro should stay mainly try. there is snow to the west where it is cold enough for that but most of us stay dry. maybe you have heard of the storm, it will be cruising in. high pressure will build and all eyes down to the south and west as low pressure. through late monday into tuesday bringing a good chance for snow across the state. you will start things out with isolated showers on through that will amount to much at all. you might stay dry all day today. sunshine by the afternoon although i think it will be in and out of the clouds and through the day monday, things look dry for most of the day. late monday into monday night snow starts after caucus time.
5:16 am
6:00 a.m., notice where this model has it to the north and west. not as much in the metro and to the south and east it is mainly rain. that might really affect the snowfall totals if this low pressure system takes a northwesterly turn. notice snow continues into tuesday evening and pulls out by wednesday but a north wind will pull in big-time wind and blowing snow is a concern. six to 10 inches northwest of the metro. they really decreased to the south and east. you could see 10 plus inch amounts. a blizzard watch has been issued late monday night into tuesday. this could all change of of the next couple of days and affect the totals. 26 is below tonight.
