Parts of Minnesota set for a dusting of snow Sunday

Then it gets quite old through Tuesday.

It's not going to snow a whole lot Sunday, but parts of Minnesota will receive a few hours of flakes that are forecast to amount to a dusting of accumulation. 

It ain't much, but at least some locations will get a winter-like experience on this mid-December Sunday. Will it snow in the Twin Cities? That's a great question, and the National Weather Service says snow could drift into portions of the metro before sunset, though the best chance for a true dusting of snow is north of I-94. 

The simulated future radar from the HRRR model won't bring much confidence to folks in the Twin Cities who are desperate for snow. Here you go... 


"A quick hitting band of snow north of I-94 could bring small accumulations, otherwise expect cloudy skies today. Chilly conditions on Monday before we return back to the mid 30s by the end of the week," the Twin Cities office of the weather service says.

While snow will be hard to come by, the temps are what will really bring a winter feel to Minnesota Sunday night into Monday morning. 

Breezy conditions overnight combined with the arctic air intrusion pushing lows into the 5-15 degree range overnight will produce wind chills to between -5 and +5 degrees F," the weather service says. It'll stay cold through Tuesday before temps moderate back into the 30s and 40s later this week. 

The coldest it has been in the Twin Cities so far in December was 16 degrees on Dec. 1. It also dipped to 16 degrees way back on Oct. 27, which was actually a full week after 7.9 inches of snow fell in the metro. What a weird fall/winter so far. 

The absolute coldest it has been in the metro since October was 13 degrees on the morning of Nov. 13. 

Monday will definitely feel like one of the coldest days in a long time as daytime highs are only forecast to be between 15 and 25 degrees.

Any snowstorms in the the forecast? Nope. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
