MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We’ll have another dance with snow Tuesday, according to WCCO meteorologist Chris Shaffer.
A storm system passing through Nebraska and Kansas Monday night is heading northeast, bringing a shield of snow along with it.
Tuesday’s high temperature in the metro will be 23, so it won’t be a cold day, and it won’t be anything like last week’s storm, which kicked off with temperatures in the 40s and rain, before temps fell into the 20s, the rain froze, then several inches of snow was plopped on top of it all.
Shaffer says this will just be a traditional light snow event that will cause issues on the roadways. The system will push into southwestern Minnesota Tuesday after 9 a.m., and will make it to the Twin Cities between noon and 2 p.m., and then enter western Wisconsin by 3 p.m.
The National Weather Service has issued a widespread Winter Weather Advisory in Minnesota due to the havoc this storm will create on the roads in the afternoon and evening hours. Iowa will be under a Winter Storm Warning, with 6 to 10 inches of snow possible in a few areas. That will not be the case in Minnesota.
The heaviest snow will fall in the metro at about dinnertime, with some scattered flurries later in the evening before it clears out after midnight. The Twin Cities can expect 2 to 4 inches of accumulation.
Minnesota will stay in the 20s for most of the week, but we’ll break into the low 30s this weekend and into early next week.
