The National Weather Service’s office in the Twin Cities predicts that the Twin Cities will see a snowy, rainy winter weather punch this week, with the wet, wintry combination probably arriving Tuesday afternoon.
A winter storm watch is anticipated to be issued for western and northern Minnesota due to the weather system. Up to 5 inches of snow might fall to the north of the metro region, where heavy precipitation is presently predicted. However, in the Twin Cities, rain and snow may still make traffic conditions hazardous.
Before 4 p.m., rain and snow are predicted in the Twin Cities. Tuesday’s low temperature of 34 degrees and wind gusts of up to 40 mph will be accompanied with rain, snow, and sleet throughout the evening. Rain is expected on Wednesday before 1 p.m., and there is a risk of further snow and rain throughout the evening.
Before 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, further snow is probable, perhaps mixed with rain. High will be in the mid-thirties with largely overcast skies. With a low of 26, there will probably be further snow on Thursday night.
Additionally, with a high of 29 degrees on Friday, additional snowfall is anticipated, notably before 1 p.m.
