Another Dose of Winter, But Warmer Weather to Follow


The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory from 7 a.m. Wednesday to 1 a.m. Thursday for a number of Minnesota counties including Carver, Dakota, Goodhue, Le Sueur, McLeod, Nicollet, Renville, Rice, Scott and Sibley. Snow-covered roads and limited visibility are possible in those areas.

Between 3 to 5 inches of snow are possible.

In the Twin Cities themselves, KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said accumulations of 1 to 2 inches of snow are possible.

A winter storm warning has been issued for Martin, Faribault, Freeborn, Waseca and Steele Counties from 7 a.m. Wednesday to 1 a.m. Thursday. A winter storm warning for Dodge, Fillmore, Mower and Olmsted Counties also runs from 7 a.m. Wednesday to 1 a.m. Thursday.

The National Weather Service said 5 to 8 inches of snow are possible in those areas.

Before that weather arrives, Barlow said conditions are expected to be mostly sunny Tuesday with a high near 40.

Then, after the winter weather moves out Thursday, Barlow’s forecast calls for partly-to-mostly sunny conditions and a high of 46.

It gets warmer still Friday when Barlow said to expect a high of 48. His forecast calls for a high of 52 Saturday and a high of 56 Sunday with partly-to-mostly sunny conditions each day.

And Monday, Barlow is calling for a high all the way up to 62 degrees.
