The groundhog lied, more snow on the way


A significant amount of snow is expected to fall Thursday into Friday in parts of southern Minnesota and the metro.

Early predictions by the National Weather Service indicate the storm will begin in southwest Minnesota Thursday morning and will spread north and northeast in the afternoon and evening.

More than 6 inches are expected in the southern third of the state. KSTP predicts snow totals will range from 6-10 inches by midday Friday.

In the metro, WCCO doesn't expect the storm to hit until Thursday evening, bringing about 3-6 inches of snow.

However, KARE 11 will only say the snow will be "plowable."

"The groundhog lied," the Star Tribune's Paul Douglas says. In addition to Thursday's storm, another storm arriving Monday could bring a few more inches.
