We could get four rounds of snow this week in much of Minnesota. Here comes round two.
The Twin Cities picked up around an inch of snow Sunday night. Another fairly weak low-pressure system is strong enough to generate more light snow for Minnesota.
The system brings another light snowy coating Monday evening and night. Another minor system sweeps through Wednesday. A bigger snow system appears to be headed this way Friday.
Snow Monday night
Our next wave pushes light snow into the Twin Cities and much of Minnesota Monday evening. For the Twin Cities, it looks like most of the snow will fall between about 6 p.m. and midnight. Snow will linger into Thursday morning for northeast Minnesota, including the North Shore.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s High-Resolution Rapid Refresh model captures the essence of snowfall coverage and timing into Tuesday morning.
Twin Cities: Another inch, heavier elsewhere
The Twin Cities will pick up another inch or so Monday evening before the snow tapers off by midnight.
Heavier totals up to 2 to 4-inches will fall in southeast Minnesota and northeast Minnesota. Lake-enhancement and topographical effects may produce closer to 5 inches along parts of the North Shore.
Bigger storm Friday?
Another light snow shot arrives Wednesday. Forecast models hint at a bigger system Friday. It’s still early and the storm track may still shift. Right now, it looks like several inches of snow could fall across a big chunk of Minnesota Friday.
