The future radar for the rest of Monday from the HRRR model shows snow lingering over the metro into the mid-afternoon, with more certainty on a line from about Mankato to Red Wing. 


The winter weather advisory is in effect until 6 p.m. Monday, with the NWS saying: "Plan on slippery road conditions. The hazardous conditions will impact the morning and evening commutes."

The metro area was littered with crashes (pink markers on the map below) as of 10 a.m. Monday. You can keep up to date with road conditions here

Another wave of light snow is expected Tuesday, with the NWS saying an inch or so could fall. We get a break most of Wednesday before a cool front sweeps south from Canada and delivers another round of light snow Thursday. 

By the time the snow is done flying on Friday there could be 5+ inches of snow for parts of Minnesota, with higher totals along the North Shore of Lake Superior. 

Then comes the coldest air of the season Friday into next week, where overnight and morning wind chills are expected to be below zero in the entire state.
