A fresh snowfall will likely cause some delays regarding the morning commute Wednesday. 

According to KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl, the snowfall will first hit the southwestern part of the state just before 3 a.m. Heavier snow will make its way through the metro by 7 a.m., causing "significant delays" for the morning commute, according to Dahl.

The high will be 23 in the Twin Cities. 

Dahl says the heaviest snowfall will last from 6 a.m. to noon. Then, snow is expected to continue to accumulate until later Wednesday night. 

6 to 10 inches of snow is expected in the metro area. Southcentral Minnesota could see an accumulation totaling over 10 inches of snow Wednesday. Places in western Wisconsin and southeastern Minnesota should expect anywhere from 4 to 6 inches of snow, according to Dahl. 

Thursday's forecast does not include snow, but Dahl said Friday will bring another chance for some heavy snow, lasting through the weekend.
