Temperatures dropped below zero for the second night in a row and an Arctic blast greeted Minnesotans again Wednesday.

Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said temperatures are expected to rise to just above zero Wednesday.

Looking ahead, Barlow said warmer air will enter the state late Wednesday, which means a few inches of snow could accumulate Wednesday night into Thursday morning. Barlow advised drivers to be careful during their morning commute on Thursday.

Meanwhile, KSTP Traffic Reporter Josie Smith said highways were in good shape Wednesday, and side roads have improved, but some neighborhood streets may still be snow-covered and slick.

The National Weather Service's wind chill advisory remains in effect until noon Wednesday.
