We might be FINALLY dodging a snow bullet this weekend. The system moving in projects strong enough to drop a bunch of snow, BUT the National Weather Service is saying it probably won't be cold enough.
I mean, it's not winter anymore, after all.
Slushy snow is possible in the southern half of Minnesota on Saturday, but just how much falls is the big question as a storm system is now just 48 hours from arriving.
In short, the storm system is set to bring a low-pressure system through central Iowa with rain and snow possible on its cold side – that's Minnesota, to the system's north.
The National Weather Service writes Thursday morning that "it does not appear cold enough" overall – temps in the 30s and 40s – for the storm to produce widespread accumulating snow, but there could be a narrow band of heavy snow somewhere in the southern half of the state with "better chances" in southeast Minnesota and southern Wisconsin.
