MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It could be an eventful first half of the weekend for much of the Twin Cities as a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow is headed our direction.
The metro got anywhere from eight to 12 inches of snow earlier this week, and another wintry mix is headed to parts of the north and west metro starting Friday night. WCCO-TV Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak said he expects the high today to get close to 40 before another storm enters the region.
Augustyniak said by late tonight, a mix of rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow will move from southwest to northeast and reach the Twin Cities after midnight. It should start as rain in the metro but could switch over to freezing rain if the temperatures are cool enough. Areas far north and west of the metro will see mostly snow.
We could see up to a half inch of rain Friday night through the first half of Saturday. The chance for snow closer to the metro increases throughout the day Saturday, which would make driving conditions very difficult.
