Sunday's incoming snowstorm appears to be no spring chicken

The NWS is comparing it to the big storm that just hit earlier in the week.

If our weather were a UFC fight, Mother Nature would have Minnesota pinned to the mat while delivering haymaker after haymaker in a ground-and-pound for the ages. 

What we're trying to say is: more snow is coming, and probably a lot of it for parts of Minnesota. 

The National Weather Service's forecast discussion from this morning likened Sunday's looming storm to the one that just blew through earlier this week, and it won't be surprising to them if we get "potential snow totals up into the 8-10" range."

Again, cross your fingers and hope it doesn't nail your location.  As of now, west-central to southern Minnesota stands the best chance to see the heaviest snow. 

Already with 9 inches of snow in April, MSP Airport needs just 4 more inches to make April 2018 one of the five snowiest Aprils on record. The all-time record was set in 1983 when MSP Airport picked up 21.8 inches, according to Paul Douglas

Meanwhile, the Twin Cities could pick up a quick half inch to an inch of snow this afternoon, meaning it might be snowing during part of the Twins Home Opener at Target Field.
