Mixed Prognistications on Mixed Precipitation for Friday

Here's an update on the storm possibilities for New Years Eve/Friday as of Wednesday at 7 p.m. As an expected one-two punch of precipitation approaches for Thursday and Friday, there was forecaster consensus on a rainy Thursday but considerable disparity on Friday's weather. KARE does not mention the possibility of snow on Friday while the Star Tribune/Paul Douglas forecasts 2 to 3 inches of snow. FOX's forecast was very confusing, seemingly predicting no snow but maybe 1 to 3 inches. Other weather outlets were either inbetween or noncommittal with respect to snow.

Follow us on Twitter for updates. The next update will be mid-morning on Thursday.
Looks like mostly rain on Friday. Maybe some light flurries later
Sleet and snow through metro on New Years Eve. Friday 1-2 east metro 2-3 west metro.
Not much snow expected in the Twin Cites on Friday. Fancy snow projection tool shows 0.0 inches of snow for metro. “But if we do get any, we could get 1 to 3 inches.”
Icy mix on Friday. A “snow potential” map shows nothing for the Twin Cities. No mention of snow at all, in fact.
Star Tribune
2-3 inches of icy snow on Friday
Snow is likely over eastern Minnesota Friday afternoon and evening. No snow accumulations mentioned except for “the heaviest band of six inches should stay to the west of the Twin Cities.”
Friday: Patchy light freezing drizzle in the morning...then snow in the afternoon. Snow accumulation around 2 inches. Little or no ice accumulation.

  1. This is a classic case of "I can't commit",remember the Christmas eve storm we were to get nothing 24hrs before we got 4-6inches,Friday the metro will have 6 inches inside 694/494 loop mark my words,with all this indecision it will happen just watch the radar Friday morning as the snow creeps in from the south and sits over us till we ring in the new year
