Spring Teased Southeast Minnesota, But Winter Returns This Week
We got a taste of spring on Saturday with warmer temps, rain, and even lightning, but winter isn't over. It was nice going out in only a sweatshirt, but you'll definitely need your winter coat later this week as colder air and more snow moves into the area.
The National Weather Service in LaCrosse has issued an update on what to expect this week and it includes below-normal temps and accumulating snow starting tonight. Read their reports below.
Spring Teased Minnesota But Winter Returns This Week
The National Weather Service posted an update this morning on its Facebook page that said southeast Minnesota will get some minor accumulating snow Sunday night into Monday with heavier amounts to the east.
A round of light snow will spread in from the south this evening, falling heaviest overnight and then exiting Monday morning. The bulk of accumulations will fall along and south of Interstate 90 where 1 to 3 inches is expected. Some spots in southwest Wisconsin could see closer to 4 inches. Plan for impacts to the morning commute where snow accumulates and monitor the latest forecast for any possible adjustments to snow totals.

Next weekend (Mar.11-13) looks COLD sorry to say.
We'll start off the week with a high on Monday around 30 degrees and around 40 on Tuesday before temps drop. Wednesday through Saturday temps will be in the 20s. Another round of snow could move through the area on Thursday with 1-4 inches possible across the region.
