Winter looks to return to Twin Cities with snow Thursday, 2nd wave this weekend

20 March 2024

It may officially be spring but winter isn’t giving up yet.

“We’re expecting sort of two separate waves of wintry weather,” said Brennan Dettmann, a meteorologist with the Twin Cities National Weather Service.

The first is expected Thursday evening with snowfall starting between 6 and 7 p.m. and lasting into Friday morning. A band of 2 to 5 inches of snow is expected to fall in the Twin Cities with more to the north.

“It could impact your morning commute,” Dettmann said.

Further north of the metro area may see even more snow, he said. The forecast calls for highs in the 30s for the Twin Cities this weekend.

The second wave is expected to begin on Saturday evening with snowfall into Sunday. The precipitation may turn into rain from Sunday night into Monday, potentially making for slippery roads conditions.

Dettmann said the snowfall this weekend is forecast to “be heavy, wet snow, difficult to shovel.” Winds also will be high with gusts up to 30 mph on Sunday.

Travelers should keep an eye on the forecast as the weekend approaches, he said. Meteorologists will have more detailed forecasts in days to come.

“This winter has been anything but typical with how low the snowfall as been,” Dettman said. “You can still get bigger storms in March and April. We’re definitely not out of it yet.”
