Snowstorm could slam parts of Minnesota Sunday night, Monday

Heavy snow will move into the state on Sunday night.

A powerful winter storm that is dropping feet of snow in Colorado and Wyoming will move into the Upper Midwest later this weekend and deposit a healthy amount of snow in parts in southern Minnesota. 

A winter storm watch has been issued in parts of southwest and south-central Minnesota, including the cities of Marshall, Mankato and Albert Lea. Upwards of 5-8 inches could fall in those areas, while a tight snowfall gradient will exist on the northern edge of the snowfall. 

The Twin Cities could very well get nothing, though any shift north could lead to a much different result.

"A band of heavy snow will push into southern Minnesota late Sunday night and continue into early Monday afternoon," says the Twin Cities office of the National Weather Service. "The biggest uncertainty is how far north the snow will spread and how tight the gradient will be."

Snow is expected to wind down by Monday afternoon, at which point there is a chance for continued flurries and possibly freezing drizzle. 

Here's the latest European computer model radar simulation to give you an idea of what the storm system may look like as it moves through Sunday night and Monday.


Another storm system is expected to eject into the Midwest around the Wednesday timeframe, though the weather service says that system currently looks to remain south of the area, though there is some potential for more rain or snow in southern Minnesota.
