Clouds have moved right back into the Twin Cities along with more scattered flurries. The good thing about the clouds are warmer temperatures across the state for the next few days.
The snow flurries on Thursday were much too light to be detected by radar so they weren’t tracked and came as a bit of a surprise to us here in the weather office. Light and fluffy snow, especially light snow, is very difficult to see on radar and we will see more of that today.
Clouds and a warm up are both in the weekend forecast. There may be some patchy freezing drizzle on Saturday night before mixing with a bit of light snow on Sunday.
A white Christmas is pretty much in the bag…Santa’s bag by the way…as periods of light snow are in the forecast for a few days next week.
