Another winter storm to dump on  Minnesota Monday night into Tuesday

Nuisance snow Monday followed by a stronger storm Tuesday.
Publish date:

Two storm systems are set to impact central and southern Minnesota Monday and Tuesday, with the latter producing higher snow totals. 

The National Weather Service Twin Cities says Monday's snow will be a "nuisance snow," with 2-4 inches falling along and north of the Interstate 94 corridor. 

Tuesday's storm looks potent, with the weather service saying amounts will be inching towards or above Winter Storm Warning criteria of 6+ inches over a 24-hour period. 

"The area of concern for the higher (warning-worthy) amounts looks to be from south central MN northeast across east central MN (southern Twin Cities) and all of west central WI," the NWS said Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile, the NWS office in La Crosse says snow totals of 3-6 inches are possible along the Interstate 90 corridor in southern Minnesota, with amounts increasing to the north. 

AccuWeather's snowfall forecast map has areas like the Twin Cities, Marshall, Mankato and Rochester in line for 6-12 inches of snow by the time both storms have moved through.

The storm's path could change, and thus change how much snow falls in certain areas. Check back for updates.
