Today, the accumulation of snow is expected to continue. Between 2 and 4 inches of snow fell throughout the northern part of Minnesota and into Wisconsin north, less than an inch south of Interstate 94.
When it comes to the snow, not much has changed since yesterday. Forecasters say this morning, a band of snow will move eastward through central and northern Minnesota.
The heaviest accumulations will be found throughout the northern part of Minnesota and northern Wisconsin, where 2 to 4 inches of snow are still forecast to fall. South of I-94, one inch or less of rain is expected.
The snow time will be brief, ranging from 2 to 4 hours, and will be shorter in the southern hemisphere. The Winter Weather Advisory for Todd, Morrison, Mille Lacs, and Kanabec counties will continue until noon today.
Following the snow, strong northwest winds with a strong wave passage are expected this afternoon. The greatest winds will be seen in southern Minnesota, where gusts of up to 35 mph are experienced.
Higher wind gusts will be deflected south of the accumulating snow, so although there shouldn't be a lot of blowing snow, there may be a few isolated events here and there in the coming days and weeks.
Temperatures will drop into the single digits overnight as the sky is clear and the winds lighten.
As a result, some WAA aloft will begin later than expected, which should keep temperatures from plummeting below zero.
The flow will shift to the southwest on Wednesday, kicking off a warming trend that will last for the remainder of the week.
