A day of change Friday with more wind and snow ahead
There will be quite the contrast in high temperatures Friday with readings near 40 in southeast Minnesota but only teens in the northwest.
A winter weather advisory goes into effect for northern Minnesota Friday into Friday night for 1 to 3 inches of snow but also high winds blowing the snow and reducing visibilities.
Snow showers will start midday in northwest Minnesota and sweep south and southeast.
Northern Minnesota will see the bulk of snowfall accumulations but a coating of snow is possible farther south as well Friday evening and overnight. Patchy ice is possible in northeast Minnesota initially as well as a few sprinkles southeast.
Winds then increase late Friday into Friday night again with much colder air Saturday. Highs will be in the teens and single digits with subzero wind chills for most.
