MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Rub your eyes and dig deep into your memory bank. Remember what snow looks like?

Well, you’re likely getting a reminder this Wednesday, as flakes are making a return engagement in parts of Minnesota.

Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak says that strong winds coming in from the west are bringing with them the possibility for a few spare flakes.

The combination of drifting snow and wind gusts may add up to dangerous driving conditions in the western part of the state.

However, snow isn’t expected to be much of an issue for drivers in the Twin Cities. Still, an expected drop in temperatures following sunset could lead to some freeze-ups on untreated surfaces.

Temperatures over the next few days are expected to be much closer to the average mark for the this time of year. Highs on Thursday and Friday should only reach the mid- to upper-teens. The overnight low on Friday could be close to zero.

It would be a long time coming. Meteorologist Lauren Casey said the latest day this area has gone without putting a sub-zero reading on the boards was all the way back in 1880 — Jan 18.
