Here's where the snow will fall in Minnesota today, tonight

Meanwhile, the south shore of Lake Superior is getting hammered by snow.

Forecasters now have a pretty good idea of where the snow will fall with a clipper-type system that is sweeping across Minnesota Thursday. 

According to the National Weather Service, western Minnesota will get a dusting while 1-2 inches could fall in eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin, including the Twin Cities. 

Temps will be cold enough to keep the precipitation as snow, meaning slick roads likely, especially during the heaviest snowfall this afternoon and evening. 

More detail here from this morning's NWS Twin Cities forecast discussion

"Total snowfall accumulations will be light, generally less than in inch in most places, but areas in southeast Minnesota and western Wisconsin could pick up close to 2 inches. Temperatures will be below freezing, so expect slick roads. Cold air will move in overnight with lows falling into the teens by Friday morning."

Overnight into Friday morning it'll be bitterly cold with brisk northwest winds creating wind chills in the single digits for pretty much everyone west and north of the Twin Cities. 

Meanwhile, break out the snowmobiles in northern Wisconsin as the South Shore of Lake Superior is going to produce some snow totals in excess of a foot. Winter storm warnings are in effect for Ashland and Iron counties for Friday and Saturday, and just look at the tight area where the big-time snow will fall.
