The last thing Minnesotans need right now is another snowstorm, but that could be what some will get Tuesday night into Wednesday.
The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a winter storm watch for counties in south-central Minnesota. It includes the cities of Fairmont, Mankato, Albert Lea, St. James, Owatonna and Rochester.
In this scenario, the Twin Cities metro area dodges the bullet, and the NWS says it's confidence is moderate to high that the brunt of the storm impacts the far southern part of the state.
They're forecasting 5-8 inches for extreme southern Minnesota with amounts tapering off to 4-6 inches on a line north of Mankato to Rochester, and even less near the metro.
"If temperatures are slightly lower than forecast, snow amounts could be increased," the NWS says.
Even though the metro might only get 1-3 inches, come on...it's mid-April for crying out loud.
We'll keep you posted as the forecast updates over the next 36 hours.
