While snow in the Twin Cities is expected to subside by Thursday evening, KSTP Meteorologist Nicole Mitchell says blowing snow could still make for a tricky drive.
As of noon Thursday, less than an inch of snow was reported at Minneapolis/St. Paul Airport. Mitchell said as winds crank up Thursday evening, blowing snow is expected.
Mitchell said another hazard to roadways is refreezing in areas that were not treated well.
According to the State Patrol, there was a total of 206 crashes statewide as of 4:20 p.m. Tuesday.
Moving into overnight, temperatures are expected to drop below zero, as is the windchill factor, according to Mitchell. She said those planning on venturing outside in such temperatures need to plan on dressing in layers.

Temperatures Friday and Saturday are expected to remain in the single digits as well.
The next round of snow can be expected Sunday, according to Mitchell.
