MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Holiday music is playing wherever you go. You put the tree up, and your outdoor lights are shining. Now, we just need some snow. It’s coming!
On Monday, northern Minnesota took a direct hit from Old Man Winter. Some towns near Duluth and Two Harbors picked up 12-22 inches of snow. There is more coming Wednesday into Thursday.
The Twin Cities are right on the borderline of accumulating snow. Just south and southeast the air will be warm enough for mixed precipitation and even rain. Yet the northern suburbs could see over 6 inches of snow.
That line will waver, however, giving us a shot of a few inches or several inches from Minneapolis to St. Paul. North of the metro expect snow, and some places over a foot.
It should taper late Wednesday with the wind picking up and the temperature beginning to plummet.
We will dip below zero for the first time this season Thursday night and it will feel like -10 to -20 in the wind.
Friday and Saturday our highs will be 25 degrees below average — and it gets even colder next week.
Welcome to December my friends!
