A few inches of snow Monday – then 40 degrees later this week?

While the East Coast is getting hammered with an historic snowstorm, another mild day is on tap in Minnesota.

There is some snow in the forecast, but it'll be nothing compared to the feet of snow out east. And warmer weather – highs 10-15 degrees above average – is expected by the end of the week, the National Weather Service says.

Here's a look at the forecast:

After a foggy and drizzly Sunday morning, highs are expected to climb into the 20s and low-30s across much of the state, the weather service says.

Freezing drizzle and light sleet is expected to develop Sunday night in western and northern Minnesota, before spreading east and eventually changing over to snow.

Most of the state will see some snow by Monday evening (the snow will start out as a wintry mix for those in the Twin Cities and southeastern Minnesota, however), with temperatures similar to Sunday – in the mid-20s to low-30s.

Snow totals will be heaviest Monday morning for western and central Minnesota, which could pick up as much as 4 inches. Less snow is expected in the Twin Cities.

Be prepared for a slower commute Monday evening, AccuWeather meteorologist Mike Doll says roads could be slippery and there could be some travel delays.

The snow won't stick around for long, though. Even warmer temperatures are expected this week – meteorologist Paul Douglas wrote on the Star Tribune's weather blog that some models are suggesting we could hit 40 degrees by the end of the week.

Normal temperatures for this time of year in the Twin Cities is in the mid-20s, AccuWeather says.
