Twin Cities rain and fog tonight, snowfall Up North tonight
Good evening, and happy Friday!! Rain showers stay in forecast for the Twin Cities throughout the evening commute, as well as overnight into Saturday morning. You may see some snow mix in with the rain early tomorrow morning, especially across the west and north metro. While a coating of snow is possible for parts of the west and north metro, with a transition back over to rain throughout Saturday morning, any snow should melt. We also have areas of fog in place across Minnesota into western Wisconsin tonight into Saturday morning. So you may need to allow some extra time on the roads tonight and Saturday morning.
Rainfall tapers west to east, with a few scattered showers still possible during the lunch hour through about mid-afternoon. However, the chance for light rain showers mid-afternoon Saturday, will only be a slight chance. High temperatures both Saturday and Sunday will be near 40°. You may see some flurries Sunday morning with the passage of a cold front. Northwesterly winds Sunday will also pack a punch at times.
While the Twin Cities can expect rainfall totals of 0.25″-0.75″ tonight through Saturday, Up North there will be some accumulating snowfall. Rain will change to snow along a line from Redwood Falls to St. Cloud to Duluth. A 1″-2″ of snowfall are possible along and north of a line from about Willmar to St. Cloud to Superior WI. Higher totals of 2″-4″ of snowfall is possible from about Alexandria, Brainerd and Hibbing.
Have a wonderful weekend!
