The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for much of western, central, east and southeast Minnesota as a snowstorm is set to drop anywhere from 6-10 inches of snow from Fargo to St. Cloud, Minneapolis and Rochester. 

The heaviest snows are currently forecast to fall in the Twin Cities and points south and east, with 8-10 inches looking like a pretty good bet at this point.

We've got more on the looming snowstorm with the guys from the Way Over Our Heads podcast as climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld and Jim du Bois break it all down. They also discuss next week's extreme cold headed our way. 

Blumenfeld says there's a good chance some schools in Minnesota miss three days of classes next week, first on Monday because of the snow and then because of extreme cold on Wednesday and Thursday.
