Moving into Friday, precipitation is expected to make its way through the state, with a combination of snow and rain. Ryan expects the mix to reach the Twin Cities by 10 p.m. and last until Saturday morning.

Because of the snow, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for multiple Minnesota counties. Those counties include Carver, Dakota, Goodhue, Hennepin, Le Sueur, McLeod, Meeker, Rice, Scott, Stearns, Steele and Wright counties.

According to NWS, with wind gusts reaching 40 mph, blowing and drifting snow is possible, making travel difficult.

Ryan said a stretch from Willmar to Mankato could see up to 8 inches of snow. In the metro, Ryan said Eden Prairie could see 6 inches, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport could see 4 inches and Stillwater could see 1 inch.
