THURSDAY’S 7-DAY: SHOT OF SNOW, THEN ANOTHER ARCTIC BLAST

Are you ready for another arctic blast?

It’s coming – along with a shot of snow before hand. Let’s take a look at your 7-day forecast:
Today looks like the warmest of the next seven days, with highs approaching 30 under cloudy skies (and some patchy morning fog). Tonight into Friday we’ll see the snow work in, with less than an inch of accumulation possible here in the Twin Cities metro – more as you head toward northern Minnesota, where 4″+ is possible. After that the cold moves in, with at least a 48 hour period this weekend where temperatures will stay below zero. We do see some moderation next week, as temperatures climb back into the single digits above zero for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and the teens on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Other than the shot of snow tonight/Friday across the area, no big storms are in sight. At least we can count ourselves lucky there.
