Light snow overnight into Tuesday morning, arctic air arrives late week

Here’s your Monday evening forecast for January 8, 2024 from Minnesota’s Weather Authority and Meteorologist Wren Clair.

A Winter Weather Advisory continues for parts of southern and western Minnesota through Tuesday morning. A Winter Storm Warning continues for far southwestern Minnesota through Tuesday morning. Neither of these include the Twin Cities metro.

Good evening! Snow develops across the metro overnight through Tuesday morning, with a coating to 2″ of snowfall possible. Where Winter Weather Advisories are in place to the west and south/southeast of the metro 2″-4″ of snow will be possible. Between Marshall and Worthington in southwest Minnesota, as much as 8 inches of snow is possible.

The Tuesday morning commute could be a little slower given the light snow. High temperatures tomorrow are back in low-30s, but winds are blustery out of the northwest.

Light accumulating snowfall is again likely Wednesday late morning into Wednesday night. An arctic airmass builds in Friday night into the weekend, bringing the coldest temperatures of the season so far.

Have a wonderful night!
