|Might it really come back, even if for only a brief visit?|
KSTP/Dave Dahl: I hesitate to even bring this up, because most of us have pushed beyond winter, but there is a chance for snow over parts of the state Friday and Friday night. An unusually cold storm system is expected to drop temperatures enough, that when combined with moisture, could actually produce some snow over southern Minnesota. Let's hope this is just a figment of the computer's imagination and doesn't become reality, because I don't think many of us can handle more snow. It's something we'll keep an eye on this week, but watch for updates because this is likely to change before it arrives.
Strib/Paul Douglas: No, I'm not predicting 15" of snow. I'm showing you what the raw model data is suggesting. The GFS has been notoriously bad, especially since February. But the odds of another (major) storm are increasing for the latter half of the week, and enough cold air may wrap into the storm's circulation for a mix of rain and wet snow. But a foot of snow - in mid April? Probably NOT going to happen. And yet that little (insane) voice in the dark recesses of my brain are shouting "be careful Paul!"
