Hello, winter: Snow remains in forecast for parts of Minnesota

Five months of snow-free weather have come to an end in parts of northern Minnesota.

Askov in Pine County had perhaps the most snow of any town, with 5 inches, the Associated Press reports.

Brainerd, Rush City, Sauk Rapids and Nisswa were among the cities that got between 1 and 2 inches of snow Sunday, although almost none of it accumulated, KARE 11 reports.

Nearly an inch of snow, plus more than a quarter inch of rain were reported in St. Cloud Sunday, the St. Cloud Times reports.

Snow remains in the forecast for much of the week around the Twin Ports and other northern stretches of the state, the AP reports. An accumulation up to an inch is possible early Tuesday morning in the far southwestern corner of the state as another system brushes the state, WCCO reports. Flurries are possible Thursday in the Twin Cities, WCCO says.

It's going to get colder, too. Most of the state can expect a hard freeze overnight Monday night into Tuesday morning.

The Twin Cities on Monday should hit a high of just 39 with mostly cloudy skies, but then it'll plunge to 27 overnight into Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service says.

Highs through the week in the metro will be in the 40s, but a bit warmer Friday, with a high near 50, forecasters say.
