MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Get ready for another helping of December snow.

The WCCO Weather Team says the storm system will first hit in the northern and western parts of the state early Tuesday morning. Later in the morning, more snowfall will move in from the south and make its way to the Twin Cities. One to 2 inches of snow is forecasted for the metro, and 3 to 5 inches up north.

That snowfall should wrap up in the metro by the afternoon, and be out of the state by Tuesday night. Temperatures will drop to the coldest we’ve seen all season on Wednesday, with a high of 5 degrees in the Twin Cities. We’ll also take our first trip below zero since Feb. 20.

There are a couple more chances of snow throughout the week, including Thursday and Saturday. It will be cold going forward with highs in the 5 to 15 degree range. Several nights will be below zero.

Most of the Twin Cities saw between 1 and 4 inches of snow following Sunday night’s storm, but central Minnesota got the brunt of the snowfall. According to the National Weather Service, St. Mathias — just south of Brainerd —  recorded 18 inches of snow.

Sunday’s snowfall, along with a bout of freezing rain Monday morning, left roads slick. The Minnesota State Patrol said it responded to 130 crashes between 8 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., including 13 with injuries. There were also 155 vehicles that left the road and 17 jackknifed semis.
