After waiting so long for December snow, Minnesota could be set for two major storms in the space of a week.

The National Weather Service says that Minnesota is set for a light round of snow on Sunday, which could bring up to two inches of snow in parts of Minnesota, with the Twin Cities set for a dusting.

But that could serve as a mere appetizer to a larger snow system that comes into the state.

While the National Weather Service isn't being drawn on predicted snow levels due to model uncertainty, it does say that the Twin Cities is in an area most likely to see "impactful winter weather."

"There are multiple chances for snow this week," it said. "Light snow arrives on Sunday, accompanied by patchy blowing snow for western areas. A stronger winter storm is developing for Tuesday and Wednesday."

BMTN's Sven Sundgaard meanwhile has shared a look at some of the models for the approaching storm, four of which show the Twin Cities getting at least some snow, with two showing it getting a significant amount.
