The National Weather Service in Chanahassen has issued a Winter Storm Warning for much of East and Central Minnesota, including the Twin Cities. The storm will hit Thursday night into Friday morning.
At this point, we may all be April's fools. The second major snowfall in a little more than a week is expected to slam into the Twin Cities area Thursday night and drop up to six inches of fresh snow on Fridley by Friday morning, marking the second straight Friday residents here will wake up to white. While last Thursday's snow totals came in under forecasted amounts, this storm is packing some moisture with it, and the Twin Cities area should see snow beginning Thursday night and extending into Friday. That should create yet another messy, miserable commute for Friday morning as well. Talk back to winter. Leave a comment below.

As Nemo recedes in Northeast, Orko looms for Midwest. The NWS Warning goes into effect at midnight Saturday.
A Watch has turned to a Winter Storm Warning for Fridley and the rest of Anoka County, as other Minnesota counties. The National Weather Service upgraded its earlier Winter Storm Watch to a Warning Saturday afternoon. The warning is in effect from midnight Saturday to 6 a.m. Monday. The storm the Weather Channel has dubbed Winter Storm Orko won't dump nearly the quantity of snow that its predecessor, Winter Storm Nemo, dumped on New England this weekend. But Orko will hit us reasonably hard, with as much as eight inches of snow by Monday morning. In the words of the National Weather Service, this will be a "SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM." Snow accumulations of four to eight inches are possible in locations across Hennepin, Anoka, Ramsey and …
