ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A snowstorm of record-breaking proportions is predicted to mess up the Friday morning commute in the Twin Cities.

Forecasters say a mix of precipitation is expected to turn over to heavy snow after midnight Thursday and leave as much as a foot of snow in the Twin Cities by midmorning.

Wind gusts of 40 mph late Thursday night could make travel difficult in open areas.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/1hjW563 ) says if Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport gets 10 inches of snow or more, it would be the Twin Cities largest April snowstorm since 1983 when 13.6 inches fell.

A winter storm warning is in effect for the Twin Cities from Thursday afternoon to Friday night.
