Wednesday will be cooler with highs ranging from the low to mid-20s south to barely zero in the northwest. Another clipper brings light snow to central Minnesota but we’re watching the potential for a larger storm system Thursday night into Friday.
A cooler day with more light snow across central Minnesota
It’s considerably colder in the northwest part of Minnesota early Wednesday. A wind chill advisory is out for those areas through the morning where wind chills are ranging from negative 20 to 35 below.
Another clipper system is bringing a quick shot of light snow to central Minnesota Wednesday morning, just south of the coldest air in far northern Minnesota this time.
Snowfall amounts will range from a few inches in portions of west central Minnesota around Alexandria to 1 to 2 inches through Morris, Brainerd, Hinckley into Hayward, Wis. Places like St. Cloud and Duluth could get a coating to one inch potentially on the southern and northern edge of most of the snow respectively. The Twin Cities could get a dusting to a coating.
High temperatures will be below normal, ranging from the low to mid-20s in southern Minnesota to a few subzero readings in the northwest corner of Minnesota.
Thursday will be milder with highs near 30 again in southern Minnesota.
Larger storm system Thursday night into Friday?
A bigger system looks to graze southern Minnesota with snow, possibly even a wintry mix Thursday night into Friday.
The models still differ on the track and timing some.
