Flurries mixing with freezing drizzle will fall Friday night, according to Barlow. By Saturday morning, 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected to accumulate. Most of the heavier snowfall will most likely hit Saturday night, where 2 to 4 inches of snow is expected in the Twin Cities.

By Sunday morning, most of the metro area should expect an additional 3 to 8 inches of snowfall. Barlow says less snow will fall to the northwest of the state but more so on the eastern part of the state and western Wisconsin. 

Sunday will be very windy, causing some blowing snow. Barlow said visibility concerns could become a factor, with temperatures starting in the 20s and dropping below zero by nightfall.
