GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - The Winter Storm Warning late this evening was cancelled from the western and northern metro, Carver, Hennepin and Anoka were taken out of the warning area. The reason is the strong north wind drying out and eating away at the rain/snow that has been falling all evening in southeastern areas of the state.
Rain and snow showers will continue through the evening. Overnight from just a coating to as much as 1 or 3 inches of wet heavy snow, mainly on all grassy surfaces mainly in the eastern metro. Some roads will be slushy as you head out in the morning in many areas along with snow continuing to fall throughout the morning making for a tough May commute. Snow showers push slowly east in the afternoon. The storm is going to remain over the upper midwest through Sunday morning as it stalls out and sits and spins around.
The waves of precipitation both rain and snow will spin back in on Friday mainly in the late day hours with cool conditions lasting through Friday with highs staying under 50.
Right now most of the models are bringing in a big swath of rain in the morning on Saturday that sticks with us throughout the day and then pulls out late in the day. Sunday does look drier with some sun breaking through and a few lingering showers. Temperatures will slowly climb back up to the low 60s. Monday we spring right back into the 70s.
A Winter Storm Warning is posted for much of southeast Minnesota and western Wisconsin, including the eastern Twin Cities metro area for the potential of the accumulating snow.
