Light snow, freezing drizzle for parts of Minnesota on Tuesday

Plus, a preview of the weather on Thanksgiving and Black Friday.
Publish date:

Roads could be a bit click in east-central Minnesota and west-central Wisconsin Tuesday afternoon with freezing drizzle possible. 

Light snow is expected to fall along and north of Interstate 94 in Minnesota through 6 p.m. while freezing drizzle will be possible in the area shown in the National Weather Service graphic below.

Snow accumulations will be very minimal with an inch being the maximum across most of the area. 

Meanwhile, the Thanksgiving warmup that's been highly publicized over the last few days isn't exactly panning out. In fact, the high temp in the Twin Cities for Turkey Day is now forecast to be 36 degrees, nowhere near the mid-40s we were hoping for. 

Temps do warm into the 40s on Black Friday but your shopping adventures will be greeted by a cold rain during the afternoon before the rain changes over to snow late Friday night into early Saturday morning. No major accumulations are expected. 

Then, all eyes turn to another storm system that has a chance to produce accumulating snow in southern Minnesota Sunday into Monday. It's still too early for details, but the National Weather Service is watching it closely.
