UPDATE (7 p.m.): As snow falls on southern Minnesota, northern Minnesota faces dangerous cold Saturday night.

A wind chill advisory is in effect for Northland until noon Sunday. Meteorologist Lisa Meadows says overnight it could be as cold as 35 degrees below zero. In such cold, frostbite can set in on exposed skin within minutes.

Meanwhile, a system of mowers from Alberta moves into southern Minnesota. A number of counties in southwestern and south-central Minnesota are under a winter weather advisory until midnight. Between 2 and 4 inches of snow are expected to fall in southern Minnesota. The Twin Cities should see less than an inch.

Looking ahead, Sunday will be cold and windy. At no time will you feel like the mercury is above zero.

Sunday evening, another mower system is expected to brush past Minnesota, leaving most areas with an inch of fresh snow. The Twin Cities, however, should be about 2 inches tall and Southeast Minnesota could see up to 3 inches pile up.

Sunday evening snow could create a slippery Monday morning ride.

UPDATE (5 p.m.): The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for much of southwestern and south-central Minnesota. The Twin Cities Subway is not under the notice.

Forecasters say communities under the advisory could see 2 to 4 inches of snow as a mower system sweeps across southern Minnesota on Saturday evening. The advisory is expected to last until midnight.

Drivers in southern Minnesota are advised to beware of slippery roads and reduced visibility. Snowfall rates of up to one inch per hour are possible.

According to the National Weather Service, up to 4 inches of snow could accumulate on a line stretching from Redwood Falls to Albert Lea. Outside this line, snow accumulations should be less important.

In the Twin Cites, snow totals should only be about 1-2 inches.

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – More snow is on the way for the weekend, with the next system settling in Saturday afternoon.

The metro area picked up an inch or less of snow Friday night, causing slippery conditions on the roads. The Minnesota State Patrol reported 216 crashes statewide, none of which were fatal.

St. Anthony saw an inch of snow, but most other areas around the Twin Cities remained under an inch.

The next flurry of snow will move into the subway around 5 p.m. It will target central and southern Minnesota, but the system will be fast and will come out around midnight.

The metro might see an inch or two, but farther south in the Minnesota River Valley the totals might approach 3-4 inches.
