Wren’s Friday Afternoon Forecast
I hope you’re enjoying your Friday, and a break from the snow today! Most of the metro saw 2″-4″ of snow last night with higher snowfall totals mainly across far southeastern Minnesota. We catch a break from snow today, but by tomorrow we’re right back in the thick of things when it comes to snowfall.
Steady snow first enters western Minnesota early Saturday morning, spreading eastward through the morning. The Twin Cities can expect snow by mid-morning. Snow becomes heavier by the afternoon with difficult travel at times into Saturday night. Sunday we keep the chance for snow throughout the day into the evening, but snow will be scattered instead of widespread like Saturday’s snow (so we’ll catch some breaks with snow off an on throughout the day).
The Twin Cities will end up with about 3″-5″ of snowfall, but higher totals are likely across northern Minnesota where a Winter Storm Watch is in place from Saturday AM through Sunday Evening.
