After New England Finds Nemo, Winter Storm Orko Will Find Minnesota
Winter Storm Watch says Fridley can expect as much as 10 inches of snow.
Nemo, meet Orko.
UPDATE 2: Winter Storm Warning for Fridley
Monday morning’s commute could be a major mess, as the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for the Fridley area and the entire Twin Cities region, beginning early Sunday morning and continuing through Monday afternoon. Snow accumulations of up to 10 inches are possible.
The precipitation should begin with a light, wintry mix Saturday night, turning to heavy snow by late Sunday. To top it off, strong winds on the back end of the front will result in blowing, drifting snow on Sunday night and Monday morning.
Don't get ticketed and towed parking in the city of Fridley, which has no snow emergencies—only all-winter parking restrictions.
The Twin Cities region isn’t getting hit nearly so hard as other areas of the country. A blizzard watch is in effect for western and central Minnesota, which could see more than a foot of snow, along with winds of up to 45 mph.
Meanwhile, the Northeast is preparing for a blizzard of historic proportions, with up to three feet of snow expected in areas around Boston. Airlines are already canceling flights to the region, and that’s having a ripple effect on schedules throughout the country. Travelers are advised to check airline websites before heading for the airport.
