If you're hitting the road this morning, use caution as road conditions won't be the greatest today, especially through the morning. Well before sunrise we saw widespread fog and mist as temperatures stayed above freezing. But the freezing line will be setting up right near the metro, so expect some messy roadways. For the metro, most of the precipitation should fall as snow, dropping about an inch or two of accumulation, but I don't think we can rule out a few pockets of mixed precipitation here and there, especially this morning.
If you're heading north, travel should be good to go. If you're heading south, southwest, or east, prepare for some rough travel. The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for areas where ice accumulations are possible, stretching from Eau Claire to Rochester and into north Iowa and includes a good portion of southern and southeastern Minnesota.
Tonight, the snow comes to an end and clouds decrease, bringing back sunshine for a good portion of the weekend. However, despite the sunshine, it will still be chilly as highs struggle to make it past the freezing mark. While most of the weekend looks nice, late Sunday we'll see snow develop once again and continue into early next week.
Happy Thanksgiving and safe travels!
