Dry, fluffy snow is on track to push through southern Minnesota Thursday afternoon and night, barely scraping the Twin Cities area while covering the ground with a few inches in the far southern part of the state.
Here's the forecast from the National Weather Service:
"Light to moderate snow will spread into south central MN late this afternoon and to the I-94 corridor early to mid evening. It will continue until about midnight before ending. 3 to 4 inches are expected along I-90 where the snow will last longest, with amounts tapering off gradually to the north to little or nothing north of I-94."
Based on forecast maps from the NWS, the evening commute should be dry in the Twin Cities, but the roads could be slick along the I-90 corridor in southern Minnesota.
Here's the latest snowfall predictions. Next to nothing in the immediate Twin Cities with 1-2 inches in the far south suburbs. Mankato is in line for 2-3 with 3-4, maybe even 4-6 inches just south of there.
The best news is that the forecast calls for highs in the 20s beginning Monday.
