Another disturbance will move through Minnesota Friday and deliver a coating of snow. 

The National Weather Service expects a dusting to an inch of snow across the metro area, with heavier amounts in north-central and northeast Minnesota, into northwest Wisconsin. 

Nothing major anywhere, so the heaviest amounts will be a few inches in northeast Minnesota, with isolated higher totals along the North Shore.

Here's the simulated future radar from the NAM model. Nothing all that impressive, but light snow will impact mainly the northern half of the state. 


Once the system moves through another charge of Canadian cold will be entering Minnesota, with temps steadily falling throughout the day Saturday before wake-up temps Sunday morning are at or below zero pretty much everywhere.

It's going to stay cold through much of next week before a possible warmup happens towards next weekend, the National Weather Service explains.
