Way Over Our Heads podcast: Get ready for a taste of winter

There could be more snow chances over the next 10 days.

Accumulating snow is on tap for parts of Minnesota this weekend especially on grassy areas. In this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast, climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld says there will be a mix of rain and wet snow on Friday night and Saturday. 

“In southern and central Minnesota, in the Twin Cities area for example, it’s going to probably rain a little bit in the early morning and maybe there’ll be a flake or two of snow mixed in”, says Blumenfeld, “and then it might become a pretty nice Saturday. 

"It’s off to the north when you look at Hinckley and Brainerd and up to Duluth where that same area of precipitation in the morning has a better likelihood of snow rather than rain.” 

Blumenfeld doesn’t expect a significant snow event but says parts of northern Minnesota could see a few inches. 

Blumenfeld says we’re entering an active weather pattern with colder than normal temperatures and chances of snow during the next 10 days. 

Blumenfeld and show host Jim du Bois also discuss NOAA’s recently released winter outlook and some much-needed rain that fell in most of the state earlier this week.

Note: This week's episode was recorded before 0.2 inches of snow fell at MSP Airport Friday morning.
