SNOW TOTALS: 20 inches in NE Minnesota, 4-6 in metro by Thursday

Posted: Updated:

Snow totals by Thursday morning will vary greatly across Minnesota, but the North Shore could see as much as 20 inches by the end of the storm. More moderate snow totals in the 4 to 6-inch range are expected in the Twin Cities metro.


Thursday night:
Foggy and damp, and a drizzle of light rain or snow, possibly a mix, will continue. Minor accumulations possible (less than 1 inch) are possible.

After midnight: The wintry mix will change to snow after the midnight hour, with 1 to 2 inches potentially accumulating in the metro before the morning commute. In northern Minnesota, 3 to 6 inches could fall.

Wednesday morning: The heaviest snowfalls should come between 4 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the metro, and that's when the bulk of snow accumulation should occur. Periods of wet snow will likely add up to 2 to 5 inches in the metro, but Lake Superior could send an additional 3 to 6 inches to northern Minnesota.

Wednesday afternoon: Snow will taper in the afternoon and evening to flurries, but the cold will start to move in with gusty northwest winds that could cause blowing and drifting snow. Roads and sidewalks are expected to freeze fast as the cold air rushes in.

Thursday: Leftover light snow flurries are possible, but it will be frigid as blustery, chilling winds continue.
