Mar. 19 Weather with Sven: 'Don't put the shovels away just yet'

Video Duration:

Meteorologist Sven Sundgaard is monitoring a storm system that is currently over the Pacific Ocean, and it could bring different types of precipitation to Minnesota Monday-Wednesday. 

"A piece of that energy breaks off and is going to develop a monster storm system develops that's going to give us a lot of moisture," says Sven. Whether it's all snow or all rain – probably going to be more rain than snow – regardless, we're talking 1-2 inches of water equivalent for somewhere here in the Upper Midwest."

The storm track will be critical in determining what parts of Minnesota receive snow, which would most likely fall overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. 

The American model is currently projecting snow on the backside of the system, mainly in the Duluth-Twin Ports area, where accumulation would be possible. The European model is further west, which would keep the Twin Cities all-rain. 

"Don't put the shovels away just yet," says Sven.
