The Twin Cities and southeastern Minnesota are going to bear the brunt of Friday's snow.

The National Weather Service says the heaviest band of precipitation will fall between the north metro area and Mankato, with a large area of southern Minnesota also getting heavy snow.

Between 8 and 10 inches is expected to fall in these areas.

There will still be significant snowfall elsewhere too, with the I-90 and I-94 corridors expected to get 6-8 inches, and the northern half of the state getting up to 6 inches.

Light snow will start on Friday morning before turning heavy at noon. It should end around noon Saturday.

Friday's snow is going to make for a hellish commute in the Twin Cities, and many will face a choice of whether it's worth taking to the roads or not.

And if that wasn't bad enough, once the snow ends it's going to get stupidly cold – even colder than the Twin Cities has experienced this week.

Air temperatures on Saturday night are expected to drop to 19 below in the metro area, and could get as low as 26 below in Morris.

Wind chill meanwhile will make it even worse, with a chill of 34 below in the Twin Cities, reaching as low as 43 or 44 below in the Alexandria/Morris area.
