A weather map that sums it all up
A powerful storm system is poised to bring twin rounds of wintry precipitation to the Twin Cities and surrounding region through Thursday, April 11.
According to the National Weather Service forecast:
The first round of precipitation will arrive late Tuesday in the form of a wintry mix of rain, freezing rain and sleet across most of southern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. More snow is possible across central Minnesota. However, snow totals will be light through the first half of Wednesday.
A second much more significant round of winter weather is expected late Wednesday afternoon into Thursday afternoon.
Snowfall accumulations of 10 to 12 inches with locally higher amounts approaching 14 or 15 inches are expected in a band centered along a line from Redwood Falls to the Twin Cities to Ladysmith, Wis.
