The always-exciting first burst of snowfall arrived in the Twin Cities and the southern half of Minnesota on Friday morning, and meteorologist Sven Sundgaard says Saturday morning could be a repeat for many of the same areas.
We'll likely start out with temps near freezing again on Saturday morning before temps rise into the 50s on Saturday afternoon in the metro, but further north the snow Friday night into Saturday could accumulate – up to 5 inches in some areas, according to the Grand Forks office of the National Weather Service.
Here's the simulated future radar from the HRRR model for the snow set to fall up north Friday night into Saturday. Blue is snow, red is a mix or ice and rain is green on the simulation.
According to Sven, the models are all over the place but there could be accumulating snow somewhere in Minnesota on Tuesday. The European model is hinting at several inches of snow in northern Minnesota, while the American model has the track further south.
"Right now Tuesday and Thursday look to have the greatest potential for widespread, measurable precipitation," reads the forecast discussion from the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service, which notes that the precipitation would stand the best chance to fall as snow if it arrives during the overnight or early morning hours.
Here's a look at what the European model shows happening Monday-Thursday next week.
