April Rain Showers To Become Weekend Snow Showers?

We are looking at a little rain for the yards this morning & early afternoon. The light showers will bring a new 0.10 - 0.25" of rain to the area, with a clearing sky later on. Highs today are in the upper 60s.

Friday remains sunny, breezy, and cooler, topping out in the upper 50s. Then Old Man Winter decides to make a cameo for the weekend.

Soaking rain will start out our Saturday morning, with upwards of three quarters of an inch of rainfall, possibly more expected. Cooler air quickly moves into this system, meaning we'll transition from rain to snow during the late morning, with all-slushy snow expected for the afternoon and early evening.

Accumulating snow does look likely, meaning our snowiest season record of 85.1" (0.4" to tie, 0.5" to break) looks to be in jeopardy. We are on the warm side of things, meaning it will be tough to get the accumulations going and to stick around, but southern MN locally, looks to be the better chance for the accumulating snow, which will be in the 2-5" range for MN & Tr. - 2" for north IA.

More rain and cooler temps will linger into early next week, with highs in the upper 40s & lower 50s. Have a great Thursday!
