MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Snow – yes, snow – is again in the forecast.
Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak says there’s a chance for slushy spring snow Saturday morning in southern Minnesota, with possible accumulation on the grass in the southern-most part of the state.
We’re eyeing a storm that will have juuuust enough cold air to allow for some snow to fall late Fri. & Sat. The storm track has been trending south, but there’s still a chance some of us could end up with accumulation. @WCCOShaffer has an update at 5p pic.twitter.com/O0xtOOgddT

Current model predictions, however, remain uncertain as to where exactly the low pressure front will hit. It’s expected to move into the state late Friday night from the southwest.
The storm could cover all of southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities, or pass to the south, clipping the southeastern corner of the state. (A clearer picture of the storm track will emerge Friday, so check back.)
If the storm hits the metro, the precipitation will likely be cold rain and some slushy snow, which should melt on contact with the ground.
The area most likely to see snow accumulation is extreme southern Minnesota, in a line stretching from Marshall to Rochester.
The storm is expected to push out of the state by Saturday night. Any snow that stacks up in southern Minnesota should melt quickly as temperatures look to be in the 50s for the rest of April.
