Original story

Twin Cities motorists may want to consider leaving a little earlier than normal on Wednesday as light snow could make for a more challenging morning commute. 

According to the National Weather Service, snow is expected to be falling across the area by 6 a.m., continue to fall during the day before tapering off by 6 p.m. 

"A clipper system will bring light snowfall accumulations to the area on Wednesday. Both morning and afternoon commutes could experience minor impacts," the weather service says. 


A dusting to an inch of snow is possible, especially in eastern parts of Minnesota into Wisconsin.

The good news is that Minnesota will climb out of the freezer after Tuesday, with temperatures rebounding into the 30s by Thursday and possibly in the 40s for the weekend. 

The normal high temps this time of year are in the low 40s, so it'll be nice to get back to normal.
