MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Easter comes late this year and yet I’m talking about snow.

We need 3.6 inches to pull into third for the snowiest winter in history. I don’t think we will see that, but I do think your yard will look different Wednesday morning.

Expect a shot of rain late Tuesday before the cold air rides in on the northeast winds and changes the rain over to snow. Southeastern Minnesota still has the best shot of seeing four or more inches of snow. I think the greatest snow totals will come from western Wisconsin.

The snow will stick in yards while spotty accumulation is possible on bridge decks and sidewalks. The heaviest snow will fall Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning, but as we head toward the weekend, the weather improves.

    Doesn’t matter about the average snow in May, there is nothing average about this winter.

  13. me says:

    …yes snow, bring it on…

    Minnesota has their 4 seasons – Almost winter, Winter, Still Winter and Enough Already. However, I would rather live here than Florida where they have 2 seasons Summer and February. It’s too hot and humid too much of the year and the bugs are the size of dinosaurs. (I lived in Florida for 5 years which was 4 years too many).

    1. Peggy says:

      I also lived in Florida for four years. 84 degrees on Christmas day is just WRONG! I may complain about the winter and snow (especially this year), but I’ll never move away!

  15. Kat says:

    Well it’s no wonder Easter is later this year.. . has to wait for the snow to be gone in Minnesota.. Blame la nina, blame the moon. whatever.. Things are just happening later than usual this spring it seems.. I

  16. Dilly says:

    I like Winter but I’ve had enough of this particular one.

  17. Zoezoezoe says:

    What kind of idiot interjects (look it up) political comments into a weather thread? You tax whiners and republicans make me sick.

  18. Charlie Severson says:

    If it helps any, the latest snowfall on record in the Twin Cities is May 28…although at the rate we’re going, we’ll probably manage to break that record too.

  19. Pennie says:

    Zoezoezoe, Pencils down class was being funny. I understood they’re sense of humor, maybe you should try to find a sense of humor yourself. I think I speak for 99% of Minnesotans, we have to use humor to get through this witer because this winter has been wat too long. If we don’t try to laugh about this winter season, we would probably go crazy. Unfortunately my husband is in the 1% who says bring on more snow.
