February 23, 2019 09:41 AM

Daytime drizzle and fog in the Twin Cities is expected to change over to heavy snow after 5 p.m. Saturday.

KSTP Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas said the fog and drizzle could be mixed with freezing drizzle at times with a high of 34 degrees.


Then, around four-to-eight inches of snow is expected by early Sunday morning, with the heaviest amounts likely to come in the southeast metro and the lightest amounts coming to the northwest.

Strong winds could lead to blizzard conditions at times. 

The National Weather Service in the Twin Cities said a blizzard warning will go into effect Saturday night and last through Sunday afternoon for much of Minnesota and Wisconsin south of Interstate 94. That includes the southern portion of the metro away from the more suburban areas.

Winds of 25-to-35 miles-per-hour are expected Sunday with gusts of around 40 miles-per-hour throughout the day. 

A winter storm watch will be in effect for counties along Interstate 94, including Hennepin, Ramsey, Anoka, Washington, Wright, Sherburne, Stearns and Douglas Counties. To the east in Wisconsin, some counties will be under a winter storm warning.
