Somewhere along the way an inch of snow became a "storm". BREAKING NEWS! When temperatures are near 32F as they will be today an inch of snow is a nuisance, most major roads stay wet with accumulation on lawns, fields, and slow-moving relatives. There probably will be some slippery roads by late afternoon and evening, especially south/east of MSP, where a couple inches may pile up. Since we've all forgotten how to drive on snow please be careful out there! Better yet, stay home, have an extra plate of food and ponder the many things we all have to be thankful for.
While many are planning on traveling over the next couple of days, a storm system will wrap up over the Central U.S., making for a few trouble spots. The good news is that significant snowfall tallies look unlikely close to home as the storm passes to our south, but rain changing to light snow Wednesday into Thursday may make for a slower commute.

It appears that light rain/drizzle on Wednesday may transition to light snow by Thanksgiving across parts of the Upper Midwest. While it doesn't appear that any major accumulations will settle in close to home, another system late this weekend could bring a light coating. Check the blog for more details. -Todd Nelson
After only the second day this month with an average temperature that was below average, temperatures will start to warm today as highs get back into the 30s. We're keeping our eye on a potentially messy Thanksgiving, with rain and snow in the forecast. Check the blog for more details. - D.J. Kayser
