It's been a remarkable stretch of three days without any appreciable snowfall in the Twin Cities, but southern parts of the state might need to break out the shovels again this weekend. 

Nothing major, just 2-4 inches possible south of Interstate 94, with the higher totals likely hovering around the Interstate 90 corridor in far southern Minnesota, according to the National Weather Service.

Here's one computer model's (GFS) spin on how things could play out. It shows light snow across the southern half of Minnesota beginning Saturday evening and lingering through Sunday.

Another computer model (NAM 12KM) keeps the snow a little further south, perhaps only giving the Twin Cities a glancing blow which would result in a dusting to an inch.

Beyond the light snow this weekend, the forecast keeps things fairly uneventful for the next 4-5 days. That's great because the snowbanks lining Minnesotans sidewalks and driveways are tall enough as is.
