Light snow and/or flurries are breaking out across much of southwestern Minnesota as of 11:00 A.M. Light snow will continue to develop early this afternoon and increase intensity through this evening. Heavy snow is likely from the evening hours through part of the overnight.
Accumulation: 4-7" of snow with most places receiving 5-6". The snow will be very fluffy and not very hard to shovel. Most of the snow will be on the ground by the time you wake-up Saturday morning. A few flurries will occur during the day Saturday, but additional accumulations are not likely.
I aniticipate difficult driving conditions later this afternoon through early Saturday morning. By clicking on this link, you will access the KAAL Driving Conditions webpage. Here you can find Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and South Dakota road conditions.
Significant improvement of road conditions will occur late Saturday morning as road crews remove the fallen snow.
Significantly colder air will follow the storm Saturday night and last through much of next week. The coldest temperatures of the season are likely Sunday through Tuesday. Lows will be around 0 with highs in the lower teens.
