Well, at least the cold is gone. (That’s what I keep telling myself.) The next low-pressure system sweeps through Thursday and the southerly winds help bring back some more normal temps, but it also brings back a pain-in-the-rear, snow. The timing Thursday morning is unfortunately through the morning commute. Expect some slick spots on roadways. Snow wraps up around lunch. There was some concern yesterday about some freezing drizzle forming around that time, but I don’t see that as an issue at this time. Most folks will end up with roughly an inch of snow in Southeast Minnesota. I would be surprised to see over 2″.
Another low-pressure system moves through Friday. Light snow will pester the region all day. Again, another 1-2″ of accumulation is possible. The last part of it brings another chance of snow Saturday, perhaps a mix too. I’m likely to make adjustments to that part of the forecast, so don’t cancel plans, but be aware there may be some icy conditions if everything pans out.
