Snow, cold move into Minnesota, temporary return to winter after record warm streak

The longest January thaw recorded in Twin Cities weather history is about to come to an end, first with what's expected to be the largest snowfall of the season, followed by the coldest day in more than three weeks.

A fast-moving front is forecast to bring 2 to 5 inches of snow across much of southern Minnesota and the Twin Cities, where a winter weather advisory is in effect from Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Snow started falling in Minneapolis around 3 p.m. Other cities in the advisory include Willmar, Redwood Falls, Mankato, Faribault and Rochester.

Some places under the advisory could see 6 inches or more as the storm passes through, said Melissa Dye, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen.
