A winter weather system has left a blanket of wet, slushy snow across the southern half of Minnesota on Sunday.
The storm became quite heavy at times, but the snow it left behind isn't expected to last for long, with the sun emerging Sunday afternoon, and while temps will be below freezing on Monday, it'll be followed by several days in the 50s.
While the snow was heavy in the Twin Cities Sunday morning, it had too much moisture to sufficiently accumulate, with only 1.5 inches recorded at MSP Airport.
