The latest projections for Sunday's snowfall in Minnesota

Southern Minnesota is in line for the most, but the Twin Cities could still see some.

Minnesota is set for its next bout of snow on Sunday, with a winter system set to impact the southern third of the state.

What was looking like a major snowfall a few days ago has seemingly weakened to the point that the National Weather Service is now estimating a fall of 2-4 inches in the worst-hit areas.

The I-90 corridor is set to get the most, with the likes of Austin and Albert Lea in line for up to 4 inches, while Rochester could get 2-3 inches.

In its update on Friday, the NWS suggested that the Twin Cities would be getting less than an inch, but after a shift in the models that has been upgraded slightly, with a fall of 1-2 inches possible in the metro.

This will mean more snow will be added to the already record total seen in the Twin Cities.

It was confirmed on Friday that the 8.9 inches of snow that has fallen in the Twin Cities is a record for October, beating the 8.2 inches that fell in October 1991 (ie. the Halloween Blizzard).

Another interesting forecast to note is that there is the potential for "lake effect snow" off Lake Mille Lacs, which could lead to some "localized snow showers" in and around the lake, though the NWS doesn't expect it to migrate too far.
