Yesterday was a shot of cold air unlike anything we’ve seen in some time in the Twin Cities. Cold, wind, and snow/ice on roads and sidewalks made for a rough travel and commuting day.
Today we see more cold, some minor snow shower chances, but a little less wind. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Let’s talk about the snow shower chance. We’re talking minimal accumulation in the Twin Cities, but some dustings are a possibility. Here’s a look at the future radar showing the light snow shower chances arriving most likely around the noon hour, +/- an hour:
Remember that it’ll be light – those blues over NW Wisconsin are more indicative of typical accumulating snow. Here’s the future radar as snow showers take their time passing through, eventually wrapping up by around 8-10 p.m. tonight:
After that we’ll clear up for Thursday, with another light snow/snow shower chance heading into Friday. Stay tuned for more details, but for now it doesn’t look to be anything major either.
