Snowstorm Looming As Thanksgiving Approaches
Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin have already seen record snowfall so far in November, and it appears more is on the way before Thanksgiving gets started.
Sleet and snow is expected Wednesday (Nov. 24) afternoon in the metro, bringing along conditions that may delay drivers. By Wednesday night, the metro area is expected to see 1-2 inches.
Most meteorologists believe the storm will dump snow into portions of northern and central Minnesota Wednesday. By Wednesday night, 4-6 inches of snow could fall fall in some places.
MnDOT is preparing for Wednesday’s conditions on Tuesday, with nearly three dozen dozen workers scheduled to spread anti-icing liquid on the roads to battle frost.
Wednesday and Thursday, MnDOT is switching over to a 24-hour operation, with anywhere from 200 to 220 trucks on the roads.
MnDOT says it has every employee on call to ensure the roads will be safe.
