Twin Cities forecasters are grappling with an enemy their brethren on the east coast know all too well: the dreaded rain/snow line. The ever-capricious weather models continue to make life a challenge for our collective local weather braintrust.
As of Thursday night, there's little agreement among the weather outlets except that it will likely precipitate -- and in considerable amounts -- in the latter part of the upcoming weekend. Approximately 48 to 60 hours before the expected arrival of the storm, here's how things stood:
WCCO: Looking more and more like snow. Models suggest 2 to 15 inches
KSTP: Mix to snow. Possibly 6 to 12 inches
FOX: 2 to 4 inches of snow.... mostly Monday morning into afternoon
KARE: Rain to snow to rain. No amounts mentioned
Strib: Potential for 2-4 inches
NWS: 60 percent chance of snow and freezing rain; no amounts mentioned
