GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Yet another storm system is pushing into Minnesota for the coming weekend, but this one will not be a slam-dunk snow storm. Instead, the system will likely bring a mixed bag of precipitation more typical of an early spring storm system.

The first bands of moisture will lift into southwest Minnesota late Friday in the form of rain showers, possibly mixing with freezing rain and sleet where surface temperatures are a bit colder.

In the metro temperatures will hover around the freezing mark Friday night meaning any ice accumulation should be minimal on treated surfaces. During the day Saturday it will be warm enough where any precipitation will be in the form of just plain rain showers.

As colder air marches in late Saturday night any moisture left over will change to snow. How much snow will depend on the timing of that change over, but some accumulation is possible in the metro, with the better chance being in areas north and west of the Twin Cities.
