"I would not be surprised if even the Twin Cities gets a brief period of rain mixed with snow," says Tom Novak of Novak Weather in his latest weather briefing for Bring Me The News. 

He's not talking about anything that's going to cause you to bust out a shovel, much less a snowblower, but he's looked ahead at the forecast details and realized what us Minnesotans realize far too often: it can snow in May. 

"I wouldn't be surprised if we had a touch of snow accumulation across central Minnesota," Novak added. 

He expects the cold weather to be in place through at least next Tuesday before things start to warm up again. Here's today's weather briefing:
