(Mankato, MN) – It doesn’t appear that the Mankato area will get as much snow on Thursday as earlier predictions.
The forecast from the National Weather Service is now calling for one to three inches of snow beginning overnight and going through about noon Thursday. Still, travel is expected to be tricky with slippery roads and high winds causing blowing and drifting snow.
The system moving in will also mean the above average temps of the last few days will give way to falling temperatures with wind chill values on Thursday as low as -20.
With the coming cold and snow, a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued by the National Weather Service, starting at midnight tonight and running through 6pm Thursday.
