MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — By the time polls close on Tuesday night — about 8 p.m. — there will already have been some serious snow cover on the ground in the Twin Cities.
WCCO meteorologist Mike Augustyniak said most areas in the metro could see up to three inches. Areas to the east and down near Mankato will see more, as much as six inches.
The system started in the southwestern part of the state and has already put down six inches in Marshall, Minn., according to WCCO Weather Watchers.
However, other areas of the state, like Bemidji, Brainerd or Duluth, may miss the snow completely.
Once the snow reaches the metro, expect a heavy coating through midnight. Augustyniak said the snow will stop by Wednesday morning, when the majority should have already melted away.
Wednesday morning’s commute shouldn’t be impacted too much.
