    Ceilings will continue to lower to MVFR/IFR over southwest and
    south central MN as snow moves into the area. Still a tad
    uncertain as to how far north those conditions will get, but
    given the tendency of northeast low-level flow to favor a drier
    solution and therefore a tighter snowfall gradient, have stayed
    persistent in keeping northern/eastern sites dry and VFR.
    North/northwest winds will veer to the northeast and increase
    above 10 knots on Friday afternoon with some gusts into the mid
    teens possible.
    
    KMSP...
    Still hanging onto the Prob30 for snow until we see radar trends
    over west central MN. If snow reaches as far north as KMSP the most
    likely attendant ceilings/visibilities would be MVFR.
