The far northern part of the Twin Cities metro area may see just a dusting of snow, with less than one inch across most of the metro. It looks like southern parts of Scott and Dakota County could see a little over an inch. Far southern Minnesota, especially along and south of I-90 could see 2 inches or more of additional snow today:
