Forecasters See Minimal Sunday Snow; Major Cold Next Week

By late Saturday night, the trend among most Twin City forecasters was to decrease the amount of snow that may fall from late Saturday into Monday. All outlets except for the Star Tribune expect any snow to amount to an inch or less. The Star Tribune predicted 1 to 3 inches. Here's a summary for the late weekend possibility of snow:

WCCO: Dusting to maybe an inch
KSTP: Expect to snow accumulations to be south of the metro
FOX: Possibility of 1 to 2 inches of snow by Monday morning but it would likely be closer to one inch.
KARE: Light snow from Saturday night through Monday. Could be some light accumulations.
Strib: 1 to 3 inches
NWS: 40-50% chance of snow by Sunday and Sunday night. No accumulations mentioned.

And now for the cold, which seems a can't-miss intrusion into our lives yet again based on all forecasts. The average predicted temperature for Monday through Friday is 11, 7, 9, 5 and 12. At this juncture, KARE seems the least down on the cold, with a fair amount of warmer variance than the other weather outlets through Wednesday of next week.
