A shift in the storm system hitting Minnesota Sunday will bring heavier amounts to an area just west and north of the Twin Cities metro.
The National Weather Service has issued a series of winter storm warnings for counties including Stearns, Sherburne, Chippewa, Kandiyohi, and Meeker, where the total snowfall Sunday could exceed 6 inches.
In fact, some parts of the state has already seen a huge dump in a short period.
It marks a significant shift since Saturday's forecasts, when parts of rural southwest Minnesota were expected to see the largest amounts, and places like St. Cloud were only predicted to get up to 2 inches.
Within the narrow band of snow, there will be places where snow falls at a rate of between 1-2 inches an hour, which has the potentially to cause visibility problems on the roads.
As for the Twin Cities, the NWS says the system has slowed down which has pushed back the timings for the storm so that the heaviest is arriving later in the morning than previously expected.
The NWS forecast discussion suggests that a strengthening jet streak could lead to heavier snow in the metro area, but the overall forecast remains for 2-4 inches for now.
The NWS notes that the system "continues to perplex and frustrate" forecasters, with BMTN's own Sven Sundgaard noting on Friday that the weekend system was difficult to predict.
