MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It looks to be an eventful day on the weather front across Minnesota.
Commuters in the Twin Cities woke up to heavy rainfall and even a little thunder and lightning on their way to work and school. The rain won’t amount to a ton, but any moisture is good with the drought conditions across the state over the past month.
And the day of weather is far from over. Snow has already been falling for several hours in western, southwestern and parts of central Minnesota. The snow arrived in the Twin Cities metro around 11 a.m. Thursday.
Sun and clouds return as things dry out on Friday.
The snow possibilities in the metro won’t accumulate to much, but it’s a good reminder for safer and slower travel as we get closer to winter. It could make for an interesting afternoon commute, especially with the Vikings hosting the Tamp Bay Buccaneers at the Metrodome Thursday night.
