Snow bookends Wednesday

Temperatures remain above average

As one round of precipitation clears out Wednesday morning, another area of light snow targets the state by evening.

Wednesday’s forecast

Precipitation (mostly snow) that predominantly moved through Tuesday is just finally clearing its way out of southeastern Minnesota Wednesday morning, with a mix of snow, rain and even some light freezing rain as of 7 a.m.

Be prepared for slick spots in the commute between the new precipitation and refreezing from Tuesday’s melting snow.

Even as the precipitation ends, it stays breezy through the morning in southern Minnesota. More sunshine returns state-wide by afternoon.

Otherwise, morning temperatures range from cooler teens north, where skies cleared overnight, to a few 30s south under continued cloud cover.

Highs make it into the 20s north and 30s south, continuing the trend of slightly above average temperatures.

A very minor disturbance brings another snow chance across Minnesota starting in northwestern Minnesota by late afternoon, and through the state during the evening and early overnight period.
