Monday could be a snowy President's Day in parts of Minnesota. 

The National Weather Service (NWS) is already giving fair warning for the possibility of accumulating snow Sunday night into Monday. 

The NWS doesn't say how much snow could fall, but its forecast discussion says it could be a "potentially significant snowfall event somewhere in the north-central." 

The discussion adds: 

"Bottom line...all should continue to monitor the latest forecasts from the NWS Twin Cities office to see how this potential event may unfold for the upcoming Washington's Birthday weekend." 

MPR meteorologist Paul Huttner says the computer models can change this far in front of a storm, but if it holds together there could be 6-12 inches of snow somewhere in Minnesota. 

Huttner says that at this point there's a 50-50 shot that the snow hits the Twin Cities. 

Paul Douglas, in his blog for the Star Tribune, says the computer models are printing out "very plowable" snowfall totals. He says the chances of a significant snowfall on Monday are "growing." 

We'll update this story when a new forecast discussion is unveiled later Thursday.
