Some parts of Minnesota are seeing the first snow of the season.  National Weather Service Meteorologist Joe Calderon says snow showers started Thursday in the north and northwest:

“The northern half of the state could see an inch or two. So not a lot. Not looking for it to stay around. But we’re getting there…into the season if you will. Even here closer to the metro along the I-94 corridor and a little bit north of there could see a dusting to maybe a half inch.”

He doesn’t expect any snow south of the Twin Cities.  Calderon says it’s not unusual to receive the first snow in mid-October in Minnesota.
