The official Minneapolis Snow Emergency Twitter account reported earlier this morning that "We can't declare a Snow Emergency after 4/1 (city ordinance) but crews will be out today, tonight and tomorrow treating/ clearing streets." St. Paul, however, isn't encumbered by a similar ordinance.
Snow emergency or no, Twin Cities snow plows might need to be roused from their spring hibernation. Up to a foot of snow could fall on the area between tonight and tomorrow morning, with the white stuff possibly falling as rapidly as two inches per hour, according to the National Weather Service.
If that isn't enough of a middle finger for you, consider that Friday's forecast also includes a possibility of snow. Seriously, winter, quit trolling us already!
