Twin Cities, southern Minnesota set for round of snow Sunday

Not a huge storm, though some areas could see several inches.

With the cold snap over and done with, parts of Minnesota are set for a round of light snow on Sunday.

The National Weather Services (NWS) says that light snow will fall during the day Sunday, with the Twin Cities getting an inch and parts of southern Minnesota seeing up to three inches.

The NWS warns that "slippery conditions" can be expected particularly along the I-90 corridor.

But Bring Me The News meteorologist Novak Weather thinks that there is the potential for higher accumulations than being predicted by the NWS.

He thinks there's the potential for 1-3 inches in an area of Minnesota that includes the Twin Cities, while southern parts of the state could see 3-5 inches.

As well as snow, Sunday could well bring the first above-freezing temperatures seen in the Twin Cities for weeks.

Even if it doesn't, the outlook for the week ahead has the metro area hitting the 40s on Monday and Tuesday, and low-to-mid-30s for the rest of the week.
