Light Snow, Wind Could Limit Visibility in Southern Minnesota

December 06, 2017 02:33 PM

A patchy system of snow moving from the northwest to the southeast could drop a dusting on portions the Twin Cities in the mid- to late-afternoon hours.

But that light snow would likely taper by early evening, leaving behind it temperatures in the upper single digits to the lower teens, according to KSTP Meteorologist Ken Barlow.

Associated potential high winds with the Wednesday snow caused the National Weather Service to issue a hazardous weather outlook advisory into the evening for most of the southern half of the state. Though snow accumulation will be an inch or less, the NWS says wind gusts reaching 30 miles per hour could cause blowing snow and lower visibility.

Another chance of snow arrives late Thursday, Barlow said, but only about an inch-worth, Barlow said. 

Temps will warm slightly over the weekend into the 20s Saturday and maybe the low 30s on Sunday before cooling off significantly on Tuesday, where a low of 0 is in the forecast.
