I know most of us are still recovering from removing last weekend’s heavy snow, but unfortunately we’re looking at a good possibility of another chance for shovelable snow for the middle of this week. Thankfully, this upcoming storm system is a weak “clipper” system, one that will move quickly through the area and drop a fairly light to moderate amount of snow on the region and then move alng to our southeast in a day or so. The action will likely get underway late Wednesday or early in the afternoon with just a little light snow and little in the way of wind to blow it around during the latter portion of the day. Right now, it appears we’ll be receiving an inch or two of accumulation by sunset Wednesday with another inch or two during the evening through the wee hours of Thursday morning. The heaviest band of snow will produce around 4 inches of snowfall and that line looks to stretch from La Crosse, Winona, and Rochester through Cannon Falls and the Twin Cities and to the northwest portion of Minnesota. Areas surrounding that line can expect slightly lower amounts with a couple of inches of accumulation a safe bet by first thing Thursday before things wind down and our weather then dries out for a few more days.
