Prep your snowblowers and warm up those tired shoveling muscles; another winter storm warning has been issued for Eagan and much of the Twin Cities area.
The National Weather Service is expecting as much as 6 to 9 inches of snow on Monday night, with snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches an hour expected. Isolated thunderstorms may be possible in the main band of snow, which will likely stretch from New Ulm across the Twin Cities to Hayward, Wis. The snowstorm will likely be preceded by rain in the late afternoon, forecasters say.
The heaviest snow is expected to fall late Monday afternoon into the early evening hours. The winter storm warning is in effect from 7 p.m. Monday evening to 7 a.m. on Tuesday, according to the weather service.
