"After this beautiful end to the weekend, an active period of weather arrives with multiple rounds of precipitation expected from Monday night through Wednesday," says the National Weather Service

At this point, Northern Minnesota is expected to see most of the accumulating snow while the Twin Cities and Southern Minnesota will receive mostly rain. (Rain, I can live with, but snow? No, thank you.)

Below you can see the radar for Tuesday at 5:30 am.

Of course, things could still change by tonight, but right now, a slushy coating of snow is possible for the Twin Cities and surrounding areas, especially as we progress into Tuesday.

The National Weather Service forecast continues explaining, writing:

"The uncertainty really starts coming in Tuesday night as the surface low starts moving toward the Great Lakes. We'll see a more defined deformation band develop on the northwest side of the low, with precipitation expected to transition from rain to snow. How much precip is still left this far northwest when this transition happens will determine our snow potential for Tuesday night through Wednesday morning."
