MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Wednesday will be another balmy day in Minnesota, and parts of the state might see some snowflakes in the morning.
Southeast Minnesota and areas along Interstate 94 saw patchy drizzle and light snowfall around 5 a.m. This precipitation could hit the Twin Cities as the morning commute begins.
Temperatures in the metro had already reached a low of 30 Wednesday morning, and after dropping a few degrees, they will rebound there in the afternoon. To the north, it will be closer to the mid-1920s.
Overnight through Thursday, moisture will move across the state, potentially causing a rapid blanket of snow early in the morning. Snow will fly over western Minnesota during the morning drive on Friday and reach the Twin Cities later in the morning. Central and western Minnesota are expected to be the most affected by this system.
Temperatures will be just as mild on Thursday before dropping into adolescence on Friday and Saturday, then rebounding on Sunday.
