Minneapolis/St. Paul forecast from the KARE 11 weather team.


MINNEAPOLIS - Temperatures will remain above freezing overnight in the metro, which means the on and off precip that has been falling throughout the day will remain rain overnight. Fairly steady temperatures in the middle 30s throughout the day tomorrow mean mostly rain also.

We will slowly get some colder air working into the system late Monday into Monday overnight that will bring a slow shift from rain to snow. western Minnesota will see that shift a bit earlier. Areas east and southeast will be a bit later. By Tuesday morning, expect most of the precipitation to be falling as snow with light accumulations across the area. Expect a trace to 2" for most of the metro by Wednesday morning. Highest accumulations will be along the north shore with up to 6" of fresh snow thanks to the effects of Lake Superior.

Flurries and light snow continue on and off through the holiday week with much cooler air on tap for the upcoming weekend.
