Temps well below normal in Minnesota with another chance of snow Tuesday

Areas hit hard over the weekend might be spared by Tuesday's snow.

Still digging out of a weekend blizzard, it appears that most of southern Minnesota will be spared more snow as a new, much weaker system, arrives on Tuesday. 

According to the National Weather Service, central Minnesota stands the best chance to pick up a couple of inches of light, fluffy snow on Tuesday. Here's a look at the simulated future radar from Tuesday morning through Wednesday morning. 


The NWS projects just a 44 percent chance of the Twin Cities picking up 2+ inches of snow, with better chances through central Minnesota, including the cities of Alexandria, Brainerd and Hinckley.  

It's not a lot of snow, but maybe just enough to force tired Minnesotans back outside for another shoveling job.

You can see in the map that chances for snow in southeast Minnesota are lower, but all it would take for Rochester to get in on the snow is the storm system sliding south a little bit.

That's the last thing people in southeast Minnesota need after being buried by 8-13 inches of snow and 50 mph winds during a blizzard over the weekend. 

Here's how much snow the NWS estimates fell in the area over the weekend.

The highest wind gust was 62 mph in St. Paul, according to the NWS. 

Another storm system could develop and move through the region Friday-Saturday, but the NWS isn't confident in what will happen just yet. 

Other than that, temps will remain well below normal for late February with daytime highs remaining in the teens and single digits.
