It was an amazing weather day across Minnesota Thursday. Waves of wind, sleet, snow and graupel pelted Minnesota at frequent intervals. That made for some interesting weather scenes in Minnesota backyards.
Our blustery Thursday weather gives way to an improving forecast Friday and Saturday.
Milder through Saturday
Our weather mellows considerably Friday and Saturday. Ample sunshine and lighter winds return through Saturday.
Saturday will be the milder day this weekend. Temperatures tumble again next week.
Sunday snow chances
Forecast models still paint a storm system moving through Iowa into Wisconsin Sunday into Monday. The bulk of forecast solutions favors accumulating snow for southeast Minnesota, with the twin Cities riding the northern edge of the snow zone.
This European model snapshot for 7 p.m. Sunday is typical of solutions that favors accumulating snow in southeast Minnesota and Wisconsin. You can see how any storm track shift north or south would mean the difference between zero snow and the potential for accumulation in the Twin Cities.
Stay tuned as we watch for model forecast changes over the next 48 hours.
