While the weather is expected to remain relatively calm Thursday and early Friday, a mix of snow and rain could develop Friday evening.
KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said snow will start to accumulate Friday night.
A winter storm watch alert states heavy snow is possible starting Friday afternoon and continuing into Saturday morning along, and southwest of, Interstate 94. Barlow said the heaviest snow is likely to fall south and west of the metro area.
The counties affected by the watch include: Carver, Dakota, Goodhue, Hennepin, Le Sueur, McLeod, Meeker, Rice, Scott, Stearns, Steele and Wright.
An early look at possible snow coming. No weather issues until after dinner Friday. A VERY sharp cut-off/gradient from town to town across the area with snow totals by Saturday morning. Stay tuned for the latest. Again, no snow until Friday night so no problems until then. #mnwx pic.twitter.com/kg3XhPNil1— ken barlow (@kbarlowkstp) March 22, 2018
Looking ahead, Barlow said the threat of snow is expected to lessen significantly by midday Saturday.
