- The Twin Cities and greater Minnesota are bracing for wintry weather that is expected to hit Wednesday night and last into Thursday and Friday. The storm was expected to drop more than a foot of snow in the region before ending Friday. The winter storm warning is in effect until noon Friday. Snow accumulations vary depending on where you are. Wind gusts will be commonly in excess of 40 miles per hour.
A narrow swath of wintry mix that includes sleet and freezing rain is forecast from parts of central and northern Kansas to southeastern Minnesota, northern Wisconsin and northern MI.
Looking at forecasting models, the weather service said the most likely scenario puts about 10 inches of snow in Brainerd with more snow falling just to the north and east. This will begin with several inches overnight, and the majority of the accumulation will happen throughout Thursday. There is an elevated risk of becoming stranded for an extended period in this storm.
Temperatures should remain mild into the early morning hours Thursday with highs in the 30s by 4 a.m. and wind gusts as high as 20 mph. Highs will top out in the low-40s, but the temps will oddly continue to rise as we head through the night.
