Digging out after a historic Twin Cities blizzard
We’re wrapping up this weekend’s never-ending blizzard in the Twin Cities, and closing it out with snow in the 15-18″ range throughout the metro area.
Check out this information about this latest storm from Meteorologist DJ Kayser:

There is more snow coming to Minnesota – but there’s also good news on the way. We have 50s on the 7-day forecast again, and even the possibility of a 60 degree day on the way. Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Looking ahead, we’re talking about some slushy accumulations over Minneapolis/St. Paul, with heavy snow in southern Minnesota on the way again.
Thankfully we look to avoid the bullseye of this, with maybe 1-2″ of slushy accumulation.
Note that heavy precipitation over Iowa and SW Minnesota in the future radar image above. The northern edge of that is what looks to impact the Twin Cities – at least for now. That would be light accumulation, versus a possible winter storm in southern Minnesota.
