Parts of Minnesota are still being hampered by Friday's huge snowfall, and the forecast says more is on its way.

It won't be anywhere near as heavy as Friday, but the National Weather Service said parts of the state – mainly around St. Cloud – can expect to see 4-6 inches of snow starting Tuesday.

There's a little respite for the north of the state, hardest hit by the most recent snowstorm, which will get a light coating of 1-2 inches, maybe 3-4 inches in some isolated areas.

As for the Twin Cities, there's potential for 2-3 inches of snow to fall, but warmer temperatures mean it could be sleet.

In its forecast outlook, the weather service said there's a chance of snow as early as Monday in the southwest of the state, before snow likely hits the central and northern areas on Tuesday.

There's the chance of more snow on Wednesday, which if substantial could cause some problems for those getting away for Thanksgiving.

Roads still covered from Friday

Parts of northern and west-central Minnesota roads are still covered or partially-covered from the blizzard that landed on Friday.

Here's MnDOT's map showing road conditions as of 6:30 a.m., and you can see there's still areas of pink (meaning completely covered) and blue (meaning partially covered) showing.

Areas of northern Minnesota were hit by just over 2 feet of snow, and St. Louis County said its teams have been working round-the-clock to get 3,000 miles of roads into a reasonable condition.

In a press release, it said public works crews have been out till 4 a.m. Saturday morning, after winds and more snow had erased much of the progress made by its crews earlier on Friday.

"In many cases, plow operators reported it was as if they were starting over with clearing snow and applying salt and sand."
