A reluctant spring arrives on Tuesday.
By the time it officially arrives at 11:15 a.m., snow will have been falling for a number of hours, according to KSTP Meteorologist Nicole Mitchell.
Periods of light snow will begin during the early-morning hours Tuesday and could produce between a half-inch and an inch by the time it's over.
But Mitchell said the snow shouldn't cause many problems on the roads Tuesday morning. However, wet roads overnight Tuesday could become slick due to refreeze.
Tuesday's high is expected to reach 33 or 34 degrees. A return of the sun is forecasted for Wednesday, when the high will reach 40.
An early look to the weekend shows rain developing Friday and a high of 44. That rain could change to snow late and continue with a rain/snow mix on Saturday when the high is expected to be 36.
Even though the calendar is changing to spring, we’ll have a pair of wintry weather events this week: one tonight into Tuesday then another Friday through the weekend. Light snow amounts are likely for mainly central and western Minnesota through tomorrow. #mnwx #wiwx pic.twitter.com/VKEm59668d— NWS Twin Cities (@NWSTwinCities) March 19, 2018
