TRENDING FROM RESULTS-TOWNSQUARE MEDIA SIOUX FALLS
A large, foreboding, winter storm will be making its way into the Midwest beginning Monday and could last several days, spanning a number of states.
This storm is expected to impact a giant region, affecting travel for anyone planning on commuting in the next few days.
This winter storm is expected to have a large amount of precipitation, but perhaps worse, high wind gusts. Depending on where you are located, these high wind gusts can close down roads and highways.
Here is what the National Weather Service of Sioux Falls has to say:
A significant storm system is expected to impact the broader region later Monday through Thursday. This is expected to bring a mix of precipitation types and gusty winds resulting in impacts and travel disruptions across the region. Please continue to monitor your local forecast. -NOAA Website
As for the Twin Cities area, here is what NOAA out of Minneapolis/St. Paul has to say:
A powerful storm system will impact the region Monday night through Friday, with precipitation coming in two phases. Phase one will move into western Minnesota late Monday night and move across Minnesota on Tuesday and into western Wisconsin Tuesday night. A mix of freezing rain and heavy snow will be possible Tuesday across western and central Minnesota, with heavy snow possible Tuesday night in western Wisconsin. Phase two of this storm will come Thursday and Friday in the form of a prolonged period of light to moderate snow that will likely lead to a few inches of snow for most of central and southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. In addition to the precipitation on Tuesday, southeast wind gusts of 40 to 50 mph will be possible.
