Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
615 AM CDT Fri Apr 13 2018

A powerful winter storm will impact central and southern portions of
the state through Sunday. Rain with embedded thunderstorms will
steadily shift north to around the I-94 corridor. The precipitation
will start to mix with and change over to snow in central Minnesota
late this afternoon then the changeover will spread south this
evening. Moderate to heavy snow can then be expected for much of
central and southern Minnesota overnight through tomorrow, with some
rates in the 1 to 2 inch per hour range. In addition, southern and
southeastern Minnesota may have some freezing rain develop before
the precipitation changes completely over to snow overnight. Strong
winds will accompany this system such that blizzard conditions will
likely occur over western Minnesota. When all is said and done,
snowfall amounts around one foot can be expected from southwestern
Minnesota through the Twin Cities metro. The snow will diminish
during the day Sunday, followed by more tranquil days Monday and
Tuesday.

Noticeably colder air will remain in place through Sunday with highs
in the 20s and 30s and lows in the teens and 20s. A warming trend is
expected early next week.
