Depending on where you're located, 2-4 of inches of snow is expected to fall Monday - mainly in central Minnesota - and then 2-4 more inches will blanket southeastern Minnesota Tuesday. At this point, the metro area is in line to get hit both days. 

By the time it's all said and done, many areas will be looking totals of 4-6 inches of snow, the NWS predicts

High temperatures all week will struggle to break 35 degrees, and the Minnesota Twins Home Opener on Thursday afternoon is currently looking at a daytime high of 35 degrees.
