As a result, Barlow said the evening commute could be a bit slick, but most of the accumulating snow will fall after 6 p.m. and will continue until about 1 a.m.

A winter weather advisory is expected to be in effect from 4 p.m. Friday through 4 a.m. Saturday. The advisory includes Carver, Dakota and Scott counties, which could see 2-4 inches of snow by early Saturday morning.

Looking ahead, blustery, cold wind will move into the metro Saturday after the snowfall and temperatures will remain in the mid-20s.
