Dec. 21 Weather with Sven: Increasing snow chances Wednesday

Video Duration:

Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard is tracking a storm system that looks to bring some accumulating snowfall to parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin on Wednesday. 

"It's a Pacific system so not a ton of snow, but enough," said Sundgaard. 

It's still too early to make solid snowfall forecasts, but a few inches definitely appears possible somewhere in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Either way, a white Christmas is at least more likely now than it appeared to be even a day or two ago. 

The National Weather Service has gone ahead and posted a winter storm watch for eastern North Dakota and far northwestern Minnesota, where 1-4 inches of snow and 50 mph wind gusts are possible late Tuesday night into Wednesday. 

After the snow Wednesday, temps plummet and bring Minnesota a real bout of Arctic cold, but only for a couple days. 

Meanwhile, Sven has the details on where you'll best be able to see the Christmas Star Monday evening. The Christmas Star is when Saturn and Jupiter are in conjunction, and it'll be the brightest its been in 800 years between 5-7 p.m.
