Snowpocalypse When? Snowpocalypse Now!


It won't be a silent night this Christmas Eve and Christmas, atmospherically speaking, as the Twin Cities can expect up to a foot of snow and further north could get up to two.

A winter storm warning for all of the Twin Cities begins Wednesday evening at 9 p.m. and will last until Saturday morning.

The snow will start Wednesday evening coming in from the south, said WCCO meteorologist Chris Shaffer. If you're traveling to the north this afternoon, you should be fine. However, if you're traveling to the south, you'll be heading straight into the storm.

That line will move up into the Twin Cities as Wednesday turns into Thursday. South of the line of snow will be another line of rain-snow mix, with some sleet and freezing drizzle.

Drivers should be aware that traveling in the southern third of the state will be difficult late Wednesday, though conditions may only devolve from there.

The heaviest snow is expected to fall Thursday, providing an extremely white Christmas Eve. From there, it doesn't show signs of stopping until early Saturday.

The snow fall will remain pretty consistent throughout Christmas Eve and into Christmas Day. Shaffer said the snow should come in waves.

Comment: Cool word - "Snowpocalypse"! We are ready. I am downtown today. Kathee is working from home. We are both going to work from home tomorrow. The tractor (Deere with plow) is gassed up and ready! Heard that the Christmas Eve service at 4th has been canceled!
