Winter Weather Hitting Central Minnesota Hard Tonight
If you plan on going out tonight, you may want to pack your mittens and a car snow brush. Up to 3 inches could fall through the evening with slick road conditions possible.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for much of central Minnesota, with snowfall totals of 1 to 3 inches in most of central Minnesota from 1pm through the overnight into Saturday.
Some parts of Minnesota, and as far east as Chetek, Wisconsin could see as much as 4 inches of snow by Saturday morning.
The winter weather will bring a mix of snow and potential rain and sleet as temperatures hover around the freezing point.
The forecast for Saturday shows the snow eventually changing to all rain by late morning and into the afternoon. Temperatures should stay above freezing throughout the day.
Be careful driving tonight as some areas could be dangerous due to the freezing temperatures and moisture on the roads.
