Nothing major at this point, according to the National Weather Service.

After a frigid week Minnesota is going to get a nice dose of weekend weather, with highs cracking the freezing mark Saturday (34 in the Twin Cities) and party cloudy skies with highs in the mid-20s Sunday. Then comes a chance for snow Monday.

"Chances are increasing for accumulating snow across a portion of Minnesota and western Wisconsin later Sunday night and Monday," says the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service (NWS). 

"Accumulations of 1 to 3 inches are possible, with the higher accumulation occurring over west central Wisconsin. Please continue to monitor the forecast, especially if you have travel plans Monday."

As of now, the weather service is giving the Twin Cities about a 40-50% chance of 2+ inches of snow, with the better chance of 4+ inches in Wisconsin.

The NAM model currently has the storm intensifying over Wisconsin after delivering a quick shot of snow in eastern parts of Minnesota, as seen in the simulation below. 


"If system slows we could see a bit more development and possible higher snow making potential. Will continue to monitor model trends," the forecast discussion written Saturday morning by the NWS Twin Cities says. 

Temps nosedive after the Monday storm system moves through, although it's not expected to get as cold as this past week did. Below zero temps are possible with daytime highs in the single digits and teens.
