Eastern Minnesota to get another coating of snow by Tuesday morning

The weather service is watching potential for a bigger storm Friday-Saturday.

After a couple of inches of snow fell in parts of the Twin Cities late Sunday, another round of snow is preparing to fall starting late Monday night. 

The National Weather Service is forecasting a trace of snow up to two inches for the metro area, with the best chances for up to 3 inches in southeast Minnesota and western Wisconsin. 

Here's the snowfall map issued Monday morning by the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service.

The HRRR model shows snow developing mid- to- late-afternoon in eastern Minnesota, then ramping up in intensity after dark in southeast Minnesota and western Wisconsin. 


Another coating of snow is possible Wednesday, the weather service says, followed by another system that could arrive by Friday.

"On Friday we could have a more potent system come through, we'll have to see," says Kenny Blumenfeld on this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast

Deep in Monday's forecast discussion from the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service is talk about a the potential for the Friday-Saturday storm. They say the storm looks to be significant but it's too early to get into specifics because the storm track and intensity is not certain.
