Quick shot of snow mid-week and no significant warmup in sight for Minnesota

Thursday's commute to work and school could be slick.
Author:

The next chance for snow across Minnesota comes Wednesday afternoon and it could make for a slippery morning commute on Thursday. 

We're only talking about an inch of accumulation for southern Minnesota and 1-2 inches for locations along and north of Interstate 94, but the timing of it won't do any favors for your drive. As you can see in the simulated radar below, snow works its way into Minnesota Wednesday afternoon and picks up in the Twin Cities early Thursday.

Meanwhile, just another cold day and good ice-making weather for Minnesota waterways today. Our morning temps in the low teens in the metro and single digits up north will only warm about 10 degrees throughout the day, so still well below freezing with a daytime high in the Twin Cities of about 24. 

We closer to 40 in the Twin Cities on Friday but temps fall back below normal into the 20s and teens next week.

Another weekend snowstorm for the Upper Midwest?

The National Weather Service is hinting at the possibility of another strong storm working through the Upper Midwest this weekend, but the track of the low pressure system is still unclear. 

Some computer models suggest that it'll stay to our south much like this past weekend's blizzard did, but at least one suggests it'll get far enough north to bring precipitation chances to southern Minnesota. 

If it does, will it start out as rain and change over to snow or be all snow? 

Right now, nothing to worry about but we'll keep an eye on it as the weekend draws closer.
