The National Weather Service is watching an approaching system that could produce snow across the region Friday and Friday night.

The Weather Service says:

“Where this all falls and how much isn't clear yet. What is clear is that travel will be impacted - potentially severely - for parts of the region.”

Residents in northeast Minnesota who were hit by a major snowstorm over the weekend may also be affected by the approaching system.

Some areas along the North Shore received 20 inches of snow from the weekend storm.
