Dec. 18 Weather with Sven: MN may pull off a white Christmas

Video Duration:

The Twin Cities may very well double, triple or even quadruple its monthly snowfall total between now and Christmas, but doing so won't take much since a meager 0.6 inches has been recorded at MSP Airport so far in December. 

Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard is closely monitoring the holiday forecast and right now it appears likely that snow will fall in the Tuesday-Wednesday timeframe next week, but where exactly accumulating snow develops is the question.

The European model, which is oftentimes the most reliable mid-range model, is currently projecting 3-4 inches of snow in and around the metro, with slightly higher totals in central and northern Minnesota. A lot will change between now and then, but it's certainly the most hope most of the state has had for snowfall in quite some time. 

Regardless of snow, it's going to get very very next just in time for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, where single-digit high temps are possible and wind chill values could be well below zero. Watch the video for more details from Sven.
