Minnesota is in for "complicated" winter weather Saturday, WCCO's Mike Augustyniak says, that could include sleet, freezing rain and rain in the Twin Cities. Expect between "a slushy inch and a slushy 3 to 4 inches," he says.

It'll be a "slop storm," MPR's Updraft blog says.

Northern parts of the state will get snow, forecasters say. KARE 11's Sven Sundgaard says the Twin Cities will see a high of 36 and a low of 30 Saturday as the storm moves through the state, with snow on the northwest part of the system and a rainy mix on the southeastern portion of it.

The National Weather Service offers these Saturday forecasts:

Duluth: Snow and freezing rain, becoming all snow after noon. High near 34. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent. Saturday night: A 50 percent chance of snow. Cloudy, low 28.

Snow and freezing rain likely, becoming all snow after noon. Cloudy, high near 32. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent. Saturday night: A 30 percent chance of snow, mainly before midnight. Mostly cloudy, low 20.

International Falls: Snow likely, mainly after noon. Cloudy, high near 31. Chance of precipitation 70 percent. Saturday night: A 50 percent chance of snow. Cloudy, low 21.
