We’re continuing to watch a large storm system that is currently located in the southwestern United States, but will soon be on our doorstep, bringing a dose of winter weather to our local area even as we approach the first weekend of April. One piece of energy ahead of that will bring some rain and then freezing rain for Wednesday night through early Thursday morning with light rain showers again as temperatures during the day climb back above the freezing mark. The main body of low pressure will bear down on us late Thursday night into Friday, producing some sleet, and freezing rain overnight before a general transition to snow will again color our landscape white for the end of the work week. Right now is appears the heaviest band of snow with this system will develop through the Twin Cities area and into northern Wisconsin while most of our local area will receive a moderate amount of snow, or in other words, 6 inches or less. The highest amounts will be north of Rochester with about three or four inches possible in the Med City from around 5:00 AM Friday through the late afternoon hours Friday.
