As of Thursday evening at 7 p.m., the consensus prediction for Friday’s winter “event” is substantially unchanged, which is to say that a small amount of freezing rain and sleet will change to snow. FOX and KARE call for no more than an inch while MPR is on the high end with 1-4 inches of snow possible. Will provide one last forecaster update tomorrow morning with grades to follow by Saturday morning. Follow us on Twitter or Facebook to receive an alert when the grades come out.
WCCO: “We’ll have a ‘phase change’ tomorrow. Maybe an inch or two when it’s done on Saturday morning.”
KSTP: 1-3 inches of snow/sleet
FOX: Not much more than a dusting to an inch when we get through with snow on Sat a.m.
KARE: Up to an inch of sleet and snow
MPR: A glancing blow that could produce one to four inches of snow Friday into Friday evening for the metro.
NWS: Winter weather advisory issued. Snow and sleet accumulation up to one inch. Ice accumulation around one tenth of an inch.
