(FOX 9) - The Twin Cities metro has been upgraded from a Winter Weather Advisory to a Winter Storm Warning through Thursday evening.
It looks like we will see a few heavier bursts of snow with rates in the 1 to 2 inches per hour range. The metro is still expected to get around 3 to 5 inches of snow, while northern Minnesota and northwestern Wisconsin should see 5 to 8 inches.
Regardless of how much snow we get, travel and commutes will be greatly impacted for the rest of the day.
Afternoon: Snow and blowing snow with gusty winds as temperatures fall to the lower teens, with wind chills below zero.
Evening: Snow tapers off in the metro as temperatures continue to fall.
Tonight into Friday: Wind Chill Advisory until noon Friday. It will be cold; wind chills will get to minus 30 in the Metro tomorrow morning with a high struggling to get back to zero Friday afternoon.
