Waking up to snow in the Twin Cities 2 weeks before Halloween. Great.

It sure was pretty, though.

It's not the Halloween blizzard of 1991, but getting snow more than two weeks before we dress our kids for door-to-door candy is just cruel. 

It could be worse. Areas of eastern North Dakota had to bust out the plows after more than a foot, up to 17 inches in some spots like Grand Forks Air Force Base, buried them last week.

The National Weather Service isn't expecting anything more than a dusting in the Twin Cities, but 1-2 inches could fall in far southern Minnesota. 

It'll all quickly melt once temperatures rise above freezing to a high of about 40 on Sunday. The week ahead looks a little warmer with highs in the 50s for the first few days of the week.

Then on Thursday, temps could even get as high as 60.

It was a little heavier further south this morning, with Fairmont having had half an inch of snow by 7 a.m. this morning, while some accumulation has been seen in Mankato.
