Wren’s Thursday Afternoon Forecast
The Twin Cities (most of central and southern Minnesota as well as west-southwestern Wisconsin) is currently under a Winter Weather Advisory, with 3″-6″ of snow possible now through about 6 AM Friday morning. That being said, I expect most of the metro will see closer to 3″-4″ of snow, with the highest totals closer to 6″ or more, across far SE MN and SW/central WI. Since temperatures are in the mid to low-30s for highs today, you’ll notice a lot of snow melting upon contact with surfaces like pavement. However, as steadier bands of snow develop and temperatures fall into the mid to upper-20s tonight, we could see some minor accumulation on the roadways. Wet roads could also become slick overnight. So be careful when driving as roads may appear wet, but in fact have a thin glaze of ice.
Another round of 3″-5″+ of snow returns Saturday through Sunday and we could likely have additional winter weather headlines in place during that time.
