Ryan said the snow is then expected to travel across the state, making its way to the metro by 8 p.m.

Because of the snow, the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch and winter storm warning for multiple Minnesota counties. The counties impacted by the winter storm watch include Dakota, Goodhue, Hennepin and Wright counties. The counties impacted by the winter storm warning include Carver, Rice and Scott counties.

Both the warning and watch go into effect at 11 p.m. Friday and expire at 10 a.m. Saturday.

Ryan said snow accumulation could vary across the metro, with Hudson, Wisconsin seeing a light dusting and Minnetonka seeing between 3 to 4 inches.

Ryan said the heaviest amount of snow is likely to fall in the Minnesota River Valley.

The snow is expected to exit the state by Saturday morning. Temperatures on Saturday are expected to reach the upper 30s.
