The Wright County Highway Department is expected to be busy over the weekend as three separate clipper systems are expected to be snow producers that, when all is said and done, could drop four to eight inches of snow on Wright County.
The first system is expected to start moving across the county between 4 and 5 p.m. and bring with it one to two inches of light snow that will fall until about midnight.
The second clipper system is expected to start about 8 p.m. Saturday and bring another inch or two of snow as it continues into the early morning hours of Sunday.
The third system is the one that has the potential for the most snow – up to four or five inches in some spots. Current models have Wright County getting an addition two to three inches of snow out of this system.
When all the snow finally clears out, behind will be some brutally cold weather Monday and Tuesday. Temperatures both nights could hit 20 below zero or worse before relief comes later in the week.
Drivers are asked to use caution when on the road because the snow will be low in moisture content, which could lead to blowing and drifting. The Wright County Highway Department asks that, if you see plows on the road over the weekend to give them the room they need to do their jobs.
