MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Twin Cities will dodge the snow storm that was expected to bring big totals on Sunday, but we’ll see a few inches on Tuesday.

Northern Minnesota will get the most snow, with a steady stream since Saturday night putting totals at 4 to 8 inches when all is said and done. A nasty wind could blow that snow around, reducing visibility significantly.

The Twin Cities may see a dusting of that storm’s snow, but it will be minimum accumulation, if any.

The heavier snow won’t come to the metro area until Tuesday, continuing into Wednesday.

That storm has a rain/snow mix line that will hit just south of the Twin Cities. At this point, it appears it will be all snow that comes into the metro area. Early estimates indicate we’ll see at least a few inches.

Heading into March, prepare for a bit of a cool down. The high for Saturday is only 19 degrees.

    Well with winter arriving this late in the season, this does not mean spring will arrive late? I sure wound not want to see snow sitting on top of the blooming flowers in April!

    As soon as the snow hits, I would expect lots of accidents. People act like they are new to Minnesota! Learn to drive or don’t drive at all!!
