A couple of shots of precipitation are headed for Minnesota, including the Twin Cities between now and Thanksgiving.
According to meteorologist Sven Sundaard, the first shot will come this weekend as a weak system sprints through the region. The American computer model is suggesting more rain than snow for the metro, with a couple of inches of snow falling in central Minnesota.
The European model is colder, which means a little snow for the metro and again, a couple of inches for central Minnesota. Basically, the Twin Cities is right on that fine line where the temperatures going one way or another will determine whether rain, a mix or snow falls.
The same situation appears to be in play for a bit of a stronger storm system poised to move through the area on Tuesday. Again, the American model shows more rain than snow for the metro, while the European model is projection more snow than rain.
But even with more snow than rain, the European model is pushing out only 2-3 inches of slushy accumulation. We're still five days away, so lots could change between now and then.
