Winter weather is still on tap later today here in the Twin Cities. Your seven-day outlook:
A Winter Storm Warning continues from Noon today to 7 AM Sunday in the Twin Cities for the potential of heavy snow. Wintry precipitation (in the form of a rain/snow mix or freezing drizzle) is possible as this system starts to impact us around midday, but it is expected to quickly change over to heavy snow later this afternoon with snow lasting through the overnight hours. By the time the snow ends Sunday, 5-10” of snow will be possible across the Twin Cities.
Meanwhile, the system for the middle of next week continues to trend warmer at the moment, and that means we could see mostly rain (besides the potential of a little snow to begin and end the system) with highs in the 40s Wednesday. We’ll have to watch the flooding threat next week as 1-2″ of rain could fall.
