Another round of snow this week

Snowstorm could bring 9 inches of snow, strong winds

MARSHALL — Looks like it’s going to be a good weekend to stay indoors. A winter storm warning — the second in a week — is in effect until noon Sunday.

Brad Adams, one of the meteorologists at The National Weather Service in Sioux Falls, S.D., says the Marshall area could get possibly 8 inches to 9 inches of snow.

It will start with 5 inches to 7 inches of snow and then “diminish a little,” he said. “And then get 3 to 6 inches more potentially.”

Adams said the area “will have some pretty decent wind.”

The wind will “make travel difficult to nearly impossible into the morning today,” Adams said. “The wind will come out of the northwest cranking up late afternoon (today) going through the night into Sunday morning with 30-to-40 mile per hour gusts.”

Adams said hopefully people can stay home and will have gotten home from their Thanksgiving travels.

The area still has snow from a storm earlier in the week and received about 5- to 6-inches of snow.

The Twin Cities metro area received nearly 10 inches of snow Tuesday night and Wednesday morning and a new winter storm watch has been issued as well.
