Sogn Valley SKYWARN

Sogn Valley SKYWARN, Inc. works in association and is coordinated by the local office of the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, Minnesota. We are a team of volunteer storm spotters who are trained to support the NWS and our local communities during times of severe weather. Our observations and subsequent reports provide critical data for the early detection of weather events capable of threatening life and/or property.

Here is the New Year's Eve forecast for our region. Although the cloud cover will make the weather gloomy, we hope your new year is bright. Also, keep an eye on the forecast for the increasing potential of our next winter storm early next week. #mnwx #wiwx SVSkywarn photo
Conditions continue to worsen in open areas this morning. Shown are visibilities and wind gusts at 8am. A look at US-212 between Bird Island and Hector. Conditions may not be as bad in the Twin Cities, but roads remain VERY icy, with numerous spinouts being reported. #mnwx #wiwx SVSkywarn photo
A ground blizzard is on track to develop later today and last through Friday night. Please avoid travel, but if you must go out, have a charged cell phone, full tank of gas, warm clothes, and tell someone where you are going, and when you expect to arrive.

The bottom line for travel this week is as follows...

Travel on Tuesday is the best plan.

Wednesday travel will be heavily impaired by accumulating snow.

Thu-Sat travel will be heavily impaired by blizzard conditions and dangerous wind chills if you get stranded.

After light snow later today, attention turns towards a powerful late week winter storm that will bring accumulating snow, strong winds, blowing and drifting snow and very cold to dangerous wind chills. Travel may be very difficult Wednesday afternoon through Friday. #mnwx #wiwx SVSkywarn photo
