Snow likely Saturday for parts of Minnesota, including Twin Cities

We'll see some nice temperatures on Friday, pushing 50 degrees in parts of the state, but a cold front will follow that could bring with it a few inches of snow.

A statement from the National Weather Service office in Chanhassen:

After another cool day today, warmer air will return in earnest Thursday night, with highs Friday again expected to push 50 in some areas. A cold front will stall out Friday night across southeast Minnesota into Wisconsin and will serve as a track for a surface low that will move up out of the southern Plains and into the Great Lakes on Saturday. A few inches of snow are expected across central Minnesota Saturday and northwest Wisconsin as this low moves by.

Winter is coming: Temps drop, rain turns to snow

The Twin Cities could get nearly an inch of rain Thursday as temperatures drop during the day, leaving the possibility for a little slush and snow, but no accumulation. It was already snowing early Thursday in western parts of the state as the cold front moves in. Areas in the northern part of the state could get 2-3 inches of snow on the grass, forecasters say.
