A little snow and ice is possible this morning, but most of the significant snow on Sunday will fall over central and northern Minnesota. There's another chance of snow Monday, when an inch or two may fall on the metro, but this may wind up being more of a nuisance event for the immediate Twin Cities, but plowable over parts of central and northern Minnesota.
Admit it, 30s feel pretty good. Imagine what 50F or 60F will feel like. Today will feel more like late January, although blue sky and a higher sun angle will help to remove some of the sting. A clipper may spark a coating of snow Saturday, a warmer front dropping some accumulating snow on northern Minnesota Sunday. Monday's snow event looks less impressive, but a little slush is possible as we start the work week.
Yes, Wednesday was a salve for the senses - just what the doctor ordered. It was the first day above freezing in 18 days, so we can be forgiven for doing cartwheels (badly). Flurries mark the introduction of a cooler front today - you'll need a coat Friday, but another thaw arrives over the weekend before a (growing) chance of accumulating snow on Monday. Stay tuned.
If you liked yesterday (30F felt pretty good huh?) you'll love today as the mercury climbs toward 40 degrees, about 11F warmer than average, give or take. Spring is not just around the corner, but the pattern appears to be more Pacific than Yukon through the end of February. By next Monday it may even snow a little...
We'll experience more cold fronts. Yes, you can take that to the bank. But in terms of subzero cold, hour after hour, day after day, the worst of winter is most definitely behind us. We thaw out by Valentine's Day; another surge of Pacific air arrives this weekend. No noteworthy storms to speak of, just a break from incessant wind chill.
