A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect from 4 p.m. Tuesday through 6 a.m. Wednesday, and the metro area could see between 2 and 4 inches of snow.
Clouds built up over the morning, but a dry air patch hovered over the Twin Cities as showers and snow surrounded the area. That clear bubble is expected to fill in during the evening hours, starting as rain and mixing into snowflakes.
The transition after dark may bring wet, slushy snow Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, with the largest accumulations occurring between 8 p.m. and 2 a.m.
This is "snow that doesn't want to be snow," so to speak -- it barely will be able to hold together and may melt quickly on concrete, but expect a 1" - 4" swath of slushy accumulations on cooler surfaces.
By Wednesday morning, the sun will breaking through the clouds and speed up the melt, meaning many roadways will be wet or slightly slushy.
