Overnight, we're going to see the first of two rounds of snow. Snow will be done by sunrise Saturday and we'll see 1" to 3" in the metro but areas just west will see up to 3" to 4" in west central and northwestern Minnesota.

Saturday brings milder temps, even above freezing. Although the day is mostly quiet, some light drizzle or freezing drizzle is possible through midday Saturday under cloudy skies. Snow will start up later in the evening and fall heavily through the night into Sunday morning just southeast of us. The metro could still see at least a few inches, especially Scott, Dakota and Washington Counties. Heavier, 6" to 12"+ is forecast for areas from Rochester, La Crosse to Eau Claire. As always, stay tuned to forecast updates as the storm moves in.

Temps drop next week to well below normal and subzero a few times.
