Weather Summary for Minnesota
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
505 AM CDT Sat Apr 14 2018

A powerful winter storm will impact central and southern portions of
the state through Sunday. Pockets of light to moderate snow over
southern Minnesota early this morning will become more widespread,
heavier and steadier by late morning and spread over much of central
and southern Minnesota. Snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour can
be expected through much of the afternoon. Strong winds will
accompany this system such that blizzard conditions will likely
occur over southwestern Minnesota with near-blizzard conditions over
southeastern 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.
