With snow arriving Saturday night, forecasters are saying the Twin Cities can expect to see up to 4 inches of the white stuff.

While the models for the overnight storm remain inconsistent, the National Weather Service as of Saturday afternoon has the metro area is in the band likely to see 2-4 inches of snow.

The narrow system will see the most affected areas in a line stretching from southwest Minnesota through to the metro.

Some of the heaviest snow is expected in parts of southwest Minnesota, which could see amounts in excess of 6 inches.

Bring Me The News meteorologist Sven Sundgaard suggests that there's the potential for areas of the metro to see 4-5 inches, but 2-4 inches remains the most likely amount.

It will add a little more to the snowpack that has been disappearing due to this week's warmth.

That said, it won't stick around for long, with Minnesota set to experience an unseasonably warm March, with temperatures hitting 50 this week and potentially hitting 60 next weekend.
