GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The first of two clippers has wrapped up for the most part early Thursday and a second system is on the way for Thursday night into Friday.
Amounts Thursday morning generally are around one inch or less in the metro with some northern suburbs close to two inches and a few places with three inch amounts north of the Twin Cites Metro.
As the next round of moisture moves in tonight into Friday enough warm air will be present to create a possible rain/sleet/snow mix initially, changing to snow giving us an additional 1 to 3 inches of slushy accumulation in the metro with some higher amounts: closer to 4" in central Minnesota.
The focus then shifts toward the next more significant storm system Sunday night into Monday. That system has the potential for several inches or more of heavy, wet snow, and is aiming for the Twin Cities at this point. Meanwhile, the weekend should be quiet, though cool.
