Northern and central Minnesota is getting another blast of winter.

Snow hit the northwest of the state Friday morning and has since been shifting to other areas. Sgt. Jesse Grabow with the Minnesota State Patrol posted to Twitter that there had been three single vehicle crashes on Interstate 94.

Barely a week after record high temperatures were set in parts of Minnesota, the Northland is under a winter weather advisory.

According to The Weather Channel, Duluth and surrounding cities could get up to four inches by Friday evening.

Most of the snow will fall between noon and 9 p.m. Additionally, visibility could be impacted to as little as a half a mile at times, The Weather Channel says.

The National Weather Service warns that road conditions could be pretty bad by the evening commute. It says people should plan for extra travel time due to slick roads.

Some light snow will also move through the central part of the state Friday morning and early afternoon.

The weather service says some light snow and rain mixture will move in a southeast direction through the state. Residents could see up to an inch of snow by the early afternoon.

Then around noon, snow will move through the Twin Cities metro area. Snow could turn to drizzle after 3 p.m., the National Weather Service predicts. The metro will get less than a half inch of snow.
