Snow in the Twin Cities isn't taking a holiday during this holiday week, as the National Weather Service forecast 2 to 5 inches for the metro area by the time people get up Wednesday morning.
However, no more snow is expected any time soon, Weather Service meteorologist Todd Krause said. "This will be the last hurrah for snowfall," he said.
Tuesday's snow, though less burdensome than last week's blizzard, still caused some flight delays.
As of Tuesday evening, 10 flights had been canceled due to conditions at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, according to spokesman Patrick Hogan. About 72 flights were delayed, with an average delay time for arrivals of 55 minutes.
Though the first few weeks of December saw little snow, the recent flurries put the metro area on track for snowfall to be above average for the month. The normal average for December is 10.8 inches, according to Krause, and the metro area was sitting at 9.9 inches before Tuesday's snow.
Snow revelers took to Chaska's Marsh Halberg Sledding Hill on Tuesday as snowplows cleared streets nearby.
Toddler Thora Rosamond of Chaska told her parents she thought the fresh snow tasted like Parmesan. Just days before, said dad Josh Rosamond, she shook a snow globe and told them "pray for snow."
Jaime and Chuck Leupen, who were visiting the Rosamonds from Oklahoma, said it had been a long time since they had seen some really good snow on the ground.
"This is just the funnest thing to have a designated sledding hill and to see everyone come out here," Josh Rosamond said.
Many Minnesota cities outside the metro area were in line for snow as well, stretching from Pipestone to Duluth. The Weather Service warned that parts of southern Minnesota may get freezing drizzle as well as snow.
Temperatures in the Twin Cities through Saturday were expected to range from the high 20s to the lower single digits.
And on New Year's Eve, there should be some sunshine for folks to enjoy after the recent gloomy weather, Krause said.
"We'll be seeing plenty of sunshine on Thursday," he said.
