Next storm could bring a foot of snow to parts of Minnesota

It's still days away but forecasters have it lined up to smack I-94.

Not to spoil the first day of spring, but there's a big winter storm aiming for Minnesota and it could dump quite a bit of snow across parts of the state.  

AccuWeather is currently forecasting a swath of 6-12 inches of snow along the I-94 corridor from Fargo to St. Cloud Friday into Saturday night, and lesser amounts in the 3-6 inch range closer to the Twin Cities and Rochester. 

The Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service is throwing around snow totals yet, but it is saying that "confidence has increased that most of the precipitation Friday night, and into early Saturday morning will be in the form of snow."

The NWS-Twin Cities is less confident that heavy snow will spread into west-central Wisconsin, whereas there could be "much heavier wet snow" for central and east-central Minnesota. 

Again, we're still 3-4 days from brunt of the storm and as Minnesotans know, the forecast can change in the blink of an eye. But this storm is certainly worth paying attention. 

We'll bring you the latest info again on Wednesday.
