Several inches of snow possible in Minnesota Tuesday

Expect temperatures to plunge this week.
Publish date:

After the warmth of this past week, Minnesota is set to see the return of more traditional November this week, which could include some snow as soon as Tuesday.

The National Weather Service says that what will start as rain on Monday evening will change to snow overnight.

The rain/snow mix will continue Tuesday morning, before turning to snow later, with  southeastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin most likely to be hit.

How much snow? Well, the NWS' forecast discussion says that "this does not appear to be a big snow maker," with the latest models suggesting totals of 3-4 inches at the most, though 1-2 inches is more likely.

That's the only chance of snow this week in Minnesota, though the NWS does say there's a hint that more could follow next weekend.

In the meantime, Minnesotans should make the most of this warm Sunday, with the weather service saying temperatures will "free fall" Monday afternoon, dropping from a projected high of 67 in the Twin Cities Monday, to just 37 on Tuesday.
