MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — For the first time in a while, we’ll be using the term winter again.
We’ll stay in the 40s for this President’s Day but by the late afternoon and evening, things will be turning to snow.
The winter weather storm will move in around 5 p.m., beginning as a rain/snow mix that will keep the roads nice and slushy.
Around 8 p.m., that wintry mix will turn to snow but because the temperature will still be around the upper 20s and low 30s, it’ll be a heavy, wet snow.
The snowfall will continue through Monday night and into Tuesday, but only flurries will remain overnight.
Early estimates show the metro area receiving anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of snow, with only the far western corner of the state seeing 2 to 5 inches.
Temperatures stay above average for the week, in the upper 30s, but we won’t see quite as much sunshine.
