Snow Tapers, but Refreeze Ahead of Morning Commute

March 21, 2018 08:25 AM

The first day of spring came with gray skies and a wintry mix.

According to KSTP Meteorologist Sam Ryan, the snow that had been falling for most of the day Tuesday tapered off during the night. Wednesday morning will feature some refreezing fog, causing a possible slow commute.

Lows are to be expected around the mid-20s Tuesday night.

Wednesday's high is expected to reach around 40 degrees, according to Ryan.

Ryan said Wednesday and Thursday would remain in the low- to mid-40s, but a storm system that is currently over the Pacific Ocean is expected to reach the state beginning Friday.

The Twin Cities should see some snow accumulation beginning late Friday and continuing through Saturday, but most of the snowfall will occur in southwest Minnesota. Highs are expected to be in the 40s until Saturday, when temperatures are expected to drop to the mid-30s.
