Dayton forum for tonight is canceledPublished 3:03pm Monday, April 22, 2013
Gov. Mark Dayton has canceled his plans to appear in Albert Lea tonight due to inclement weather.
This message came from the Governor’s Office: “This evening’s Meeting with Mark has been postponed due to the incoming winter storm. A new date for the event will be announced as soon as it has been scheduled.
The Twin Cities, Mankato, Duluth are in a winter storm warning, issued by the National Weather Service. Faribault County, to the west of Freeborn County, and Dodge and Steele counties, to the north, are in a winter weather advisory.
Freeborn County is in a hazardous weather advisory and is expected to get a thunderstorm this evening that also produces snow, but less than an inch.
The National Weather Service’s Chanhassen bureau says: “Precipitation will taper off late tonight as the system heads east. Snowfall amounts of 6 to 9 inches are forecast within the winter storm warning area, and 3 to 6 inches are expected with the winter weather advisory.”
