Snow Chances Return Thursday Evening

Posted: Updated:

Another weak wave will follow our large cool down on Thursday which will likely lead to more accumulating snow across many areas Thursday night. This continues to be a very weak wave meaning large snow accumulations are not expected. Generally, this will likely be more of a nuisance type storm than anything with fairly light snowfall rates and a pretty short window for the snow to fall in the first place. Looks like accumulating snow in the metro will fall between the 6pm and midnight range with the most accumulation happening in northern metro locations. Here is a peek at what some of the forecasting computer models are showing for the area.

The largest totals look to form in a pretty thin band across central MN likely just north of the metro with the Alexandria to St. Cloud to Cambridge areas picking up the most with 3 inches not out of the question. Looks like most northern metro areas will be in the 2 inch range with the southern metro more in the 1 inch category. Now this is if this happens exactly how the models predict, which is usually not the case. They usually have the general concept, but can fumble the execution with their prediction either too heavy or too light, or often the heaviest part of the band is a little off in location. So here is what our "Snow Meter" shows.

Looks like our computer model is in the same general agreement which is a really good sign. Still looks like the metro will be on the southern end of the band and getting an inch with maybe 2 in the north. And has the higher totals just north of the metro in the St. Cloud area, with those locales picking up closer to 3.
