Void of any March snowstorms so far, it looks like Minnesota will be warm enough once again to dodge another bullet what in many years would be snow will be mostly rain from system set to move in this weekend.
"A storm system will bring widespread rain and gusty winds to the area late Friday into early Sunday. The rain will likely end as snow, particularly north of I-94, but only minor accumulations are expected at this time," says the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service (NWS).
For parts of southern Minnesota, we could be talking about 1-2 inches of rain.
"At this point it doesn't look like much if any accumulation will occur in our area, with the best chance for anything being north of I-94," reads the forecast discussion. The rain should begin late Friday night and last through the day Saturday before we dry out on Sunday.
We'll update the Weather MN blog if anything in the forecast changes.
