After a record-setting cold hit the Twin Cities last week, warmer temperatures are on their way.
KSTP Chief Morning Meteorologist Ken Barlow said warmer air is expected to move through the state Saturday.
Clouds are expected to develop that afternoon and there is a chance of some light snow Saturday night, Barlow said. However, he added any accumulation is expected to be minimal, most likely remaining under an inch.
Then, Barlow said Sunday will be the warmest day experienced in the metro area since Christmas Eve. Temperatures Sunday are expected to be in the 20s.
Looking ahead, cold air will return to the state next week, but temperatures are expected to remain above zero degrees, Barlow said.
According to the National Weather Service, this winter season has seen slightly less snow than usual. Since the beginning of the winter season, the area has only received 7.2 inches of snow. The normal value for this time is 22.6 inches, according to NWS.
