Snowstorm could make Upper Midwest holiday travel a mess
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Forecasters say a snowstorm could make Thanksgiving travel a mess in southern Minnesota, western Wisconsin and other parts of the Upper Midwest.
At least 6 inches (15 centimeters) of snow is expected to begin falling Tuesday afternoon south of Interstate 94, followed by strong winds on Wednesday.
National Weather Service meteorologist Brent Hewett says Wednesday morning “is not looking great for travel.” Minneapolis-St. Paul could see its biggest November snowfall since 2010.
Hewett says northwestern Wisconsin could be hit by 8-12 inches (20-30 centimeters) or more of snow. He says travel in northwestern Wisconsin “is going to be chaotic.”
Meteorologists say another winter storm could develop after Thanksgiving into the weekend. But they say it’s too soon to tell whether that system will bring rain, snow or a mix.
