Reluctant Spring Arrives Tuesday with Snow

March 19, 2018 09:45 PM

A reluctant spring arrives on Tuesday.

By the time it officially arrives at 11:15 a.m., snow will have been falling for a number of hours, according to KSTP Meteorologist Nicole Mitchell.

Periods of light snow will begin during the early-morning hours Tuesday and could produce between a half-inch and an inch by the time it's over. 

But Mitchell said the snow shouldn't cause many problems on the roads Tuesday morning. However, wet roads overnight Tuesday could become slick due to refreeze.

Tuesday's high is expected to reach 33 or 34 degrees. A return of the sun is forecasted for Wednesday, when the high will reach 40.
