Slushy accumulation possible Sunday; 80 degrees Monday?

Where the snow falls, it could accumulate – mainly on grassy surfaces.

There's a chance that temps skyrocket into the 70s and 80s on Monday, but not before an airmass cold enough to allow for light accumulating snow pushes through Minnesota on Sunday. 

More from the National Weather Service further below, but meteorologist Sven Sundgaard has all of the details in the video here. 

"Clouds and rain today will give way to clearing skies and cool temperatures on Saturday, with highs expected to remain in the 40s. Sunday will feature clouds and precipitation once again, though this time with snow during the morning that transitions to rain in the afternoon," says the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service (NWS). 

"And of course if it's going to snow on Sunday, it only makes sense to have southern Minnesota make a run for 80 on Monday."

Depending on where the heaviest band of snow sets up, it'll be cold enough for snow to accumulating up to three inches on grassy surfaces Sunday morning. As of this writing, the best chance is in eastern South Dakota and western Minnesota, according to the NWS.

Monday will be interesting and potentially much warmer than the map above shows. 

The weather service notes that the European computer model is showing a chance for clearing skies and high temps reaching 80 all the way into the northern Twin Cities. But other models suggest there could be low clouds and some rain on Monday, which would bust any potential of reaching 80.
