Minneapolis — After a quiet start to the new year, we’ve hit our third major storm in the last four weeks. This time he spanned over two days.
The National Weather Service has issued ice storm warnings for several south-central Minnesota counties. Much of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, has a winter storm warning.

Light snow will start falling in the southern subway and south on Monday night and will continue overnight, but won’t make its way north until Tuesday morning.
Tuesday is a warm day, with a maximum temperature of 32 degrees on the subway. However, this is problematic because it messes with the precipitation stage and creates wet, heavy snow.
The heaviest snowfall will occur Tuesday morning through late afternoon. We were able to see speeds of 1-2 inches per hour before the evening action subsided.
A light band will begin Tuesday night and light snowfall will continue on the subway through early Thursday, with highs dropping to the mid-20s for the day
The subway is expected to have 6 to 10 inches of sediment by Thursday, but areas north and west of the subway could be much more. Parts of southwestern Minnesota can get more than a foot of snow.
Friday’s highs are only in the high teens on the subway, but it slowly begins to warm up over the weekend, with highs in the high 20s to kick off the week of work.
