Snow in central Minnesota early Sunday; stronger storm system Tuesday?

The models are all over the place with Tuesday's storm.

A couple of chances for snow in Minnesota will exist now through Thanksgiving, with the first dose coming in a very mild form late Saturday night into Sunday morning. 

According to the National Weather Service, snow, or even a rain-snow mix, will push through Minnesota tonight into Sunday morning. Areas north of Interstate 94 stand the best chance to see all snow, and up to 2 inches could accumulate from Morrison to Chisago counties.

Potential for a stronger storm system moving through Tuesday exists, but right now computer models are all over the place in their projections.

"For now Tuesday will begin with snow that would change over to a wintry mix and then rain," says the weather service. "It is still unclear which solution will verify so we will continue to monitor the forecast for any developing trends."

Here's the European model, which shows the Twin Cities right on the rain-snow line with the Tuesday storm.

The American model shows the storm being more potent, though also warmer so the bulk of the precipitation in southern Minnesota would be rain if this solution were to verify.

Then there's the NAM model, which shows mostly snow in Minnesota, though the system is further south which in turn brings the bulk of the precipitation to far southern Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Definitely keep tabs on the forecast as we get closer to Tuesday.
