With last winter lasting until April, snow may be the last word Minnesotans want to hear. 

But flakes may begin to fall sooner than later in northern Minnesota, according to KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl.

Dahl said the Arrowhead could see a light dusting as soon as Thursday evening. Whatever falls is not expected to accumulate.

Snow in September is not uncommon, but there are usually only trace amounts, according to Dahl. 

During the month of October, Minnesota usually averages 3 inches of snow, Dahl said. 

Check State Temperatures 

While snow is only expected in northern Minnesota, residents in the rest of the state can expect cool temps throughout the week. 

Dahl said overnight lows during the week are expected to be in the 40s, with afternoon highs in the 50s.
