It might be cold enough for some slushy snow to fall on Saturday

It's looking like a wet Saturday, with snow possibly mixing in for some.

Why can't April fully commit to spring?

Wednesday is the definition of spring: Sunny with highs cracking the 70-degree mark before a few light showers are possible later in the day. We'll take that every day of the week after putting in 5-6 months of hard winter labor. 

Here's the forecast, brought to you by Pet Evolution. 

Thursday? Sunny and 68. Amen. 

Friday? Sunny and 58. What's with the cooling? We'll still take it. 

Saturday? Rain with possible snow mixing in and highs in the 40s. 

It's not going to snow everywhere, but the National Weather Service is saying it could be cold enough Saturday morning to support some slushy snow accumulation in parts of Minnesota. It's too early to pinpoint where that MIGHT happen, but their current thinking is the Mille Lacs Lake area up into northwest Wisconsin. 

The simulated future radar depictions from all of the main computer models show snow mixing in at times on Saturday. Here's one of them, the GFS, to give you an idea of what's possible (this is a simulation of something still 3-4 days away, so don't bank on it just yet).

We'll have more details as the storm gets closer, but enjoy the gorgeous weather in the meantime if you can.
