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.

The Cannon Falls SKYWARN training class planned to be held on Saturday, April 1st has been cancelled due to winter weather. THIS IS NOT AN APRIL FOOL’S JOKE!! Goodhue County is now in a Blizzard Warning from 11pm until 7am on Saturday. Everyone be safe!!

Rain will change over to snow from west to east this evening. When it does, expect a few hours of whiteout conditions from very heavy snow and strong winds of 35 to 45 mph. This will make travel extremally difficult. Blizzard warnings (red) are in effect #mnwx #wiwx SVSkywarn photo
Due to a Blizzard Warning being issued for Goodhue County overnight, our Saturday morning SKYWARN class in Cannon Falls has been CANCELLED. @NWSTwinCities SVSkywarn photo
You might have heard some rumbles of thunder overnight, but if you didn't, you'll get the chance again later today.

Rain will transition to heavy snow this evening as winds pick up and create visibility reductions. Remain weather aware going into your Friday night!

HEADS UP - a variety of hazards are expected the next couple of days across our area. Heavy snow might mean you should adjust your travel plans. Severe thunderstorms could produce damaging wind and tornadoes. Plus precipitation will bring rivers up with some flooding. SVSkywarn photo
