GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - A major winter storm is pushing through the central U.S. and will affect the Twin Cities overnight Thursday night into Friday. It will, however, bring significantly less snowfall when compared to areas further south.
Parts of Nebraska, Kansas, and Iowa will see the potential of a foot of snow from this system. Virtually all parts of the central part of the country will be impacted by this storm in one way or another.
In the Twin Cities metro, expect the first bands of snow to reach us by about midnight tonight and continue through the late night hours into Friday, gradually becoming less intense during the afternoon Friday. We'll see about 1 to 2 inches by morning commute (sure to slow things down) with an additional 1 to 2 inches during the day Friday.
Metro totals will range from 2 to 4 inches, with the 2 inches confined to the northern suburbs with 4 inch amounts possible in the south metro, even some 5 inch totals just south of the Twin Cities.
A Winter Weather Advisory (2-5") is in effect for the Twin Cities Area Thursdady night into Friday.
