A new round of winter weather is headed toward Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

Minnesota’s Weather Authority says light snow will start after 9 p.m. in the Twin Cities metro. Light snow continues through Wednesday morning, with freezing drizzle possible on the south end of the snow.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for parts of the state through 3 p.m. Wednesday.

While the snow totals may not seem crazy, the weather will likely create icy roads and cause Wednesday morning’s commute to be much trickier and slower than normal.

Overall, between 2-4 inches of snowfall is expected in the Twin Cities metro area, according to Minnesota’s Weather Authority. Farther north of the metro, 4-6 inches is possible and areas close to the North Dakota border could get as much as 10 inches of snow. South of the metro area could get just an inch due to more freezing drizzle.

The good news is temperatures Wednesday are expected to get up into the mid-30s with sunshine, meaning the icy conditions should melt away during the day. More sunshine and above-freezing temps are expected for the rest of the week.
