Wren’s Tuesday PM Forecast
Good evening! Today was relatively pleasant, mild and seasonable, but the rest of this workweek into the weekend will be active with snow chances each day. For reference, the Twin Cities has already seen 74.7” of Snow this Season and Average Winter Snowfall is 51”, and the snowiest winter on record was 98.6” in 1983/1984.
Your Wednesday forecast brings the chance for light sctd. snow, with some drizzle mixed in. From Wednesday through early Thursday morning, 1″-2″ of snowfall is possible across most of the state (generally under 1″ across the east metro into western Wisconsin).
A Winter Storm Watch is in place for the Twin Cities, central & southern Minnesota into southwestern Wisconsin from Thursday PM into early Friday morning, with 3″-6″ of a wet snow likely. Thursday evening’s commute and the early Friday morning commute are likely to be slow.
Saturday PM into Sunday, more plowable snowfall is on the way, but it is too early for a specific snow total range.
Have a wonderful night!
