Coming Storm Looks To Slam Southern Minn. With 10+ Inches Of Snow

 

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – As all eyes were on the Vikings in Philadelphia Sunday night, a storm system was headed toward Minnesota, and residents in the southern part of the state could be digging out of a foot of snow by Tuesday morning.

Meteorologist Molly Rosenblatt says the heaviest snow is expected to fall across a swath of southern Minnesota, in a line stretching from Worthington to Red Wing. Communities within the snow-band could well see 10+ inches of heavy, wet snow.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for most of southern Minnesota and the metro, as well as a Blizzard Warning for south-central Minnesota. Travel is expected to be hazardous Monday afternoon, with possible whiteout conditions and massive snowdrifts.

As for the Twin Cities, snow totals are more difficult to forecast.

“Keep in mind, there will be a narrow corridor where a large range of snow amounts are expected over a short distance,” WCCO meteorologist Molly Rosenblatt said. “With that sharp gradient, we could still see some changes, slight changes, in that track that will still be possible for us.”

The cut-off of the snow-band looks to fall right over the metro area, and just 30 miles could mean the difference between communities seeing 2 inches of snow and 10 inches of snow.

Northern Minnesota shouldn’t see any snow.

This Vikings’ Playoff Run has the Right Karma

By Ray Richardson

 

Allow me the opportunity to calm nervous feelings for Vikings fans who can’t seem to get 1998 and 2009 out of their system.

    Yes, those two seasons are painful nightmares in the 57-year history of the franchise. The Vikings were good enough to get to the Super Bowl on both occasions, but neither team had the karma that has carried the 2017 Vikings to the doorstep of NFL history.

    Besides flossing one of the NFL’s best defenses, the Vikings have demonstrated all season an ability to overcome trauma that would ruin most teams.

    In 1998, the Vikings’ 15-1 regular season march became such a formality that they had no clue on how to handle adversity when it mattered most. The team’s mental toughness was never tested before that fateful NFC title match with Atlanta. When things got tense for the Vikings in the Metrodome, the pressure wore down the players and coaches.

In 2009, even with a future Hall of Famer at quarterback, the Vikings forgot how important it is to hang onto the football. Six fumbles and Brett Farve’s rookie-style interception in overtime helped New Orleans win a game the Vikings should have won.
