Chance of a dusting of snow in Twin Cities overnight, northern MN to get more least it's something.

With Christmas fast approaching, the prospect of even a thin coating of snow is one that will be eagerly welcomed by many a Minnesotan after this abnormally dry December.

And there's a chance that could happen overnight, with the National Weather Service saying a clipper system is likely to bring some light snow into Minnesota.

Parts of northern Minnesota are set to see an inch or more, but the likelihood of the same happening in the Twin Cities is slim – at 0-10 percent, per the NWS.

There seem to be more decent prospects ahead for snow on Wednesday, just in time for Christmas, but there remains much uncertainty about that at this stage.

As for Sunday night, there is a 30-40% chance the Twin Cities will get a "dusting of snow."

Considering the last measurable snow the Twin Cities had was October...

Take it

You know how this is lining up though, right? The comparatively balmy December in which spending time in snowfall would have been quite pleasurable? No snow.

Get ready for a combined 60 inches of snow in January coupled with -30F temperatures.
