Snow showers taper in most areas Sunday a.m.; breezy p.m.

Temps near normal

There could be a few slick spots this morning due to the overnight mix of rain and snow.

The snow showers taper off as we go through Sunday morning in much of eastern Minnesota, but they could linger into afternoon in parts of northeastern Minnesota.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s North American Mesoscale (NAM) forecast model shows the potential precipitation pattern from Sunday morning through Sunday afternoon:
