Another round of disruptive snow will hit the Minneapolis area.

A powerful storm could dump up to 8 inches through Thursday evening into Friday. The storm will make driving difficult and cause flight delays.

Strong winds Thursday night into Friday will create blowing and drifting snow and blizzard conditions in western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota. Travel during this time may become dangerous.

Once the storm ends, arctic air will return to the region for the end of the week.

By Sunday, it will be almost 30 degrees colder than it was on Tuesday. Temperatures will get no higher than the single digits during the day with below-zero readings at night.
