WEATHER SUMMARY FOR MINNESOTA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
345 AM CST SAT DEC 20 2014

CLOUDS AND SOME LIGHT SNOW OR FLURRIES DRIFTED OVER THE NORTHERN
PORTION OF THE STATE DURING THE NIGHT.  SOME FOG AND PATCHY FREEZING
DRIZZLE OCCURRED ELSEWHERE. EARLY MORNING TEMPERATURES WERE IN THE
MID 20S TO LOWER 30S.

A WEAK UPPER TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE WAS NEARLY STATIONARY OVER THE
STATE AND WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CLOUDS AND FLURRIES AND FREEZING
DRIZZLE.  THE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE SLOWLY EAST TODAY AND
SHOULD TAKE MOST OF THE LIGHT PRECIPITATION WITH IT.  HIGHS ARE
EXPECTED TO WARM THROUGH LOWER AND MIDDLE 30S.

ANOTHER WEATHER SYSTEM OVER THE DAKOTAS WILL MOVE EAST TONIGHT AS
WARMER CONTINUES TO WORK EAST.  THIS WILL GENERATE A SMALL CHANCE OF
LIGHT SNOW...FLURRIES AND FREEZING DRIZZLE TO MAINLY NORTHERN AND
CENTRAL MINNESOTA.  PATCHY FREEZING DRIZZLE AND FOG WILL BE POSSIBLE
OVER THE SOUTH.

WARMER AIR MOVES ACROSS THE STATE SUNDAY...CONTINUING THE THREAT OF
LIGHT RAIN...SLEET AND SNOW TO MAINLY EASTERN AREAS.  HIGHS WILL WARM
THROUGH THE 30S ON SUNDAY.

MORE ENERGY WILL DROP SOUTHEAST OVER THE DAKOTAS LATER SUNDAY AND IS
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM THAT WILL MOVE INTO
SOUTHERN MINNESOTA.  A MIX OF RAIN...SLEET AND SNOW WILL WORK ACROSS
SOUTHERN MINNESOTA SUNDAY INTO MONDAY.  MAINLY SNOW SHOULD OCCUR TO
THE NORTH.  ACCUMULATING SNOW IS A GOOD POSSIBILITY AS COLDER AIR
DROP SOUTH AND EAST ACROSS MINNESOTA MONDAY INTO MONDAY NIGHT.

THE CHANCE FOR SNOW LINGERS INTO MIDWEEK...SO HOLIDAY TRAVELERS
SHOULD CONTINUE TO MONITOR THE LATEST FORECAST.
