More Spring Snow in Minneapolis’ Forecast
We’re talking snow, again, in Minneapolis/St. Paul. We’ll see a quiet start to Sunday in the Twin Cities, followed by light snow, followed by what looks like a couple inches of accumulations.
Here’s a look at your Minneapolis 7 day forecast (and St. Paul 7 day forecast):
Timing for snow still looks similar to what it looked like for today yesterday, we’ll likely see light snow start up during the early to middle portion of the afternoon:
Then the accumulations start to move in during the evening hours across central Minnesota:
Most snow showers will wrap up overnight and into early Monday, with what looks like close to 2″ of fresh snow on the ground.
Here’s what I’m looking at for snowfall totals across Minnesota by Monday morning:
You can see the heaviest totals will be located in SW Minnesota, with as much as 4-6″ of snow in some of those places.
Luckily, we’ll warm up quickly (relatively) after this snow, and by the end of the day Monday we should see most of the roads clear up. There are also a few chances for 50° or higher temperatures this week, which will be quite a significant change.
Remember that it’s still April, so some minor setbacks (like what we’re seeing next weekend) will keep happening, but it’s a good sign to see that we’re breaking out of our long-term cold air pattern.
