Relief from the bitter cold arrived Tuesday in the metro as afternoon temperatures reached the upper teens.

A light bout of snow began around 4 p.m. in the Twin Cities. The heaviest came down between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., according to meteorologist Dave Dahl.

Amounts were expected to range from 1 inch north of Interstate 94 to around 2 inches south and east of the interstate, Dave said. In the southwest, Mankato, Northfield and Albert Lea were expected to receive at least 3 inches.

A few locations were expected to receive 4 inches in the south and to the east.

Dave says temperatures are excepted to be in the 20s on Wednesday. Even warmer air will waft north into Minnesota on Thursday and Friday with afternoon temps expected to reach toward 30 degrees.

Dave says next week looks like it will be even warmer.

And a reminder: on Sunday clocks will be turned forward one hour at 2 a.m. for Daylight Saving Time. While Minnesotans will lose an hour that day, it will add more sunlight into the evening hours by pushing back the times of sunrises and sunsets.
