Snow, wind and freezing rain are expected today and tomorrow, Nov. 10 and 11, as a large storm front tracks its way across the state of Minnesota.
The STMA and Otsego area can expect anywhere from 4 to 6 inches of snow from Tuesday night into Wednesday morning – an amount that should snarl the Wednesday morning commute. The snowfall should start falling later on Tuesday afternoon and could also have an impact on Tuesday’s drive home.
