EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (FOX 9) - After 2"-4" of snow generally in the greater metro last night, it's all rain today as temperatures will climb into the upper 30s. The combo of mild temperatures and off and on rain through the day, means there won't likely be much snow left on the ground by the end of the day. But the ground is frozen, so that water will all be runoff and freeze quickly overnight tonight when temperatures tumble back below freezing.
Our "transition zone" will dance around a little inside the yellow line through the afternoon... south of there including much of the greater metro will be rain with light to moderate rain falling now... north of there will be all snow which could be heavy at times... pic.twitter.com/DxU4WgZLvL— Cody Matz (@CodyMatzFox9) December 27, 2018
