Snowy Sunday, major winter storm Monday night into Tuesday for southern Minnesota

It includes the Twin Cities.

Buckle up, southern Minnesota. This past week's snow was just the beginning of what is expected to be another snowy week with multiple storms possible. 

The winter wonderland returns Sunday as the southern half of the state is in line for 1-3 inches of snow, including 2-3 in the metro, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The NWS says Sunday's snow could overachieve and push snow totals above 4 inches, but that's likely dependent on where any heavier banding of snow sets up. 

But the bigger storm comes Monday night and Tuesday and the NWS is already saying there is a "very high" chance of "at least" six inches of snow in the Twin Cities, Mankato and Rochester, and a "high" chance of 6+ inches for surrounding areas, including St. Cloud.

"Forecasts are trending towards the possibility for another high-impact winter storm Monday night through Tuesday. The heaviest snowfall looks to be across southern & eastern Minnesota through western Wisconsin," says the NWS. 

The storm track could still shift and change things significantly, but it appears as though a good chunk of Minnesota is going to get pounded by this snowstorm. 

Here's a look at the current storm track and future radar simulation from the GFS model. It shows what could happen starting at 1 p.m. Monday. .

The NWS will likely start releasing more specific snowfall forecasts at some point this weekend, but the forecast discussion from Saturday morning indicates that 8-12 inches will be likely for some. Exactly where, however, is up in the air. 

Stay tuned.
