The Twin Cities are expected to get as much as 5 inches of snow Tuesday, adding to the roughly 10 inches that fell on the metro last week.
The snowfall may begin as flurries before noon and will likely intensify by 3 p.m., just in time for the evening rush hour, according to the National Weather Service. Snowfall totals between 2 and 5 inches are anticipated.
The evening commute may also be complicated by patchy fog expected to roll in about 5 p.m., the NWS said.
The snow is forecast to taper off by midnight, and skies should begin to clear by Wednesday morning, with no more precipitation called for through the workweek.
High temperatures will remain in the 20s through New Year’s Day on Friday.
Tuesday’s wintry weather is part of a storm system that is expected to impact much of the Upper Midwest, including northeastern Iowa and southwestern Wisconsin.
