ST. PAUL, Minn. (KNSI) The Minnesota Department of Transportation is gearing up for another round of wintry weather in the Twin Cities this weekend.
The National Weather Service is forecasting freezing rain and snow for the metro area that will change to snow between Friday night and late Saturday.
MnDOT expects from 2 to 4 inches of snow in the Cities, with the lowest amount in the south metro and the highest in the north.
St. Cloud is in a Winter Weather Advisory from 3 am to 3 pm Saturday. Freezing rain could fall tonight before changing to snow on Saturday. One to three inches of new snow is possible.
