We know where you'd like us to go, but we're just the messenger for Mother Nature, and she's got plans in Minnesota next week.
According to the National Weather Service, we have three shots at some wintry weather on the way, but all of them could be mostly rain if the temperatures stay warm enough. Here's what the NWS is saying.
- Monday-Tuesday, less than 2 inches of snow in most areas.
- Wednesday, snow possible with better chances further north.
- Thursday-Friday, a stronger system moves through.
It's that third one that makes everyone a little nervous. We can deal with some slush, but when the NWS-Twin Cities starts saying things like "potentially more significant system" our ears go up.
The good news is the NWS believes the third system will come mainly as rain, but it's being "monitored for the potential of more significant weather" into next weekend.
Meanwhile, Paul Douglas says most of the snow will be gone by Monday, just in time for the first official day of spring on Tuesday.
And enjoy the heck out of this weekend as temps climb close to 50 today and back into the mid- to- upper-40s on Sunday. It's not quite what it was in 2012 with temps reaching 80 degrees on this day, and that's no blarney!
