Light snow in southern Minnesota Tuesday

Temperatures stay below average

Cold air continues its grip on Minnesota Tuesday, while another round of snow moves across the state.

Tuesday’s forecast

Behind the weekend storm and the cold air that funneled across Minnesota Monday, Tuesday morning is starting off frigid.

Morning temperatures range from the negative teens in the Arrowhead to a few teens on the plus side in southwestern Minnesota.

The slightly milder temperatures south are thanks to more clouds overnight and a southerly flow along with low pressure sliding south of Minnesota. That system is also bringing light snow into southern Minnesota through the morning, which quickly exits into the afternoon.

Snow should stay from about Fergus Falls to Mora and south, including the Twin Cities, with any accumulation a little farther south of that line. Amounts are forecast to be mostly under one inch of snow, with a few spotty areas in south-central Minnesota likely to see up to two inches.

Because of that system, most of the state remains cloudy Tuesday, with a bit more sunshine north.

Highs stay chilly, predominantly in the teens and 20s, which is 10 to 15 degrees below average.

A couple additional rounds of snow are likely through the end of the week.
