Hazardous weather outlook, from emergency management:
In the series of active weather systems, focus is turning to the potential of a winter storm to impact parts of the area beginning tonight and continuing through much of Wednesday. Colder air surging in will interact with a weather system, bringing a swath of heavy snow with accumulations between 4 and 8 inches possible. Winter storm watches are posted. Northwest winds will increase overnight into Wednesday, making conditions worse. Hazardous to treacherous driving conditions are likely, and the Wednesday morning commute may be difficult.
The area of likely impact is south and east of Rochester. A webinar is scheduled for 1 PM today. For updated information, consult weather links found here: http://alerts.rochestermn.gov/Public/Weather/Weather.aspx
