Pre-Thanksgiving weather: Snow could make for driving hassles

For those of you planning to be on the road Wednesday, either for work or for the Thanksgiving holiday, expect to see just enough snow to create some messy driving conditions.

Snow is on the way into Minnesota late tonight through Wednesday. Snow showers will push in from the Dakotas after midnight Tuesday night.

Get ready for a snowy Wednesday morning commute in the Twin Cities. Look for the activity to taper off through the late afternoon but not before 1-2 inches of snow falls across the metro.

The heaviest and worst travel conditions will be along the Minnesota River Valley in southwest and southern Minnesota, where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until noon Wednesday. As much as 2-4 inches of snow is possible in the advised region.

Most of the snow will fall before the early afternoon hours, making travel a bit tricky Wednesday morning, especially south and west of the Twin Cities. Blowing snow with reduced visibilities are even possible in the open areas of western Minnesota Wednesday morning, so travel with care.

Thursday should be clear and dry, but it will be chilly, and we'll get another shot of some snow on Friday, according to MPR meteorologist Paul Huttner.
