MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – WCCO Meteorologist Matt Brickman says that, while the Twin Cities has hardly seen any snow this winter apart from one storm early this month, that should soon change.
Brickman says that he expects the Twin Cities to see possibly 1 to 2 inches of snow in the metro area by Friday morning.
Those totals could be higher down in southwestern Minnesota, where the possibility exists for anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of snow in the same time period.
The snow should move in from the southwestern portion of the state Thursday afternoon. It should start snowing in the Twin Cities closer to 9 or 10 p.m., according to Brickman.
The snow should continue light and steady into Friday morning. Brickman said he expects a very dry, fine type of snow, owing to the very cold temperatures.
The southern suburbs are likely to see more snow from this system than the north side.
Up until now, the only major snowfall event in the Twin Cities this season was on Dec. 8 and 9. Nothing else has dropped more than 1 inch of snow at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
