Another storm system will drop 2 to 5 inches of new snow across Wright County, with heavier amounts expected south of the Twin Cities Metro.
The National Weather Service in Chanhassen has issued a Winter Weather Advisory. For those commuting this week, things could get nasty on the drive home, as the snow is expected to hit the Twin Cities some time after noon and continue to fall through the evening.
