Brace yourselves, Minnesotans: more snow is on its way. However, only the southern parts of the state, as well as the metro area, will have to endure it. 

Northern and central Minnesota will not see much of anything when it comes to snowfall on Sunday, according to KSTP meteorologist Nicole Mitchell.

The high on Sunday in the Twin Cities will be 24, still a few degrees below the average this time of year.

Mitchell says to expect the snowfall to begin around 6 a.m. to 7 a.m. Sunday, lasting until the early afternoon hours. The Twin Cities is expected to only see less than an inch of accumulated snow, while places like Owatonna and Rochester could see anywhere from 2 to 3 inches. 

Southern Minnesota is expected to see the most snow, according to Mitchell. There is an active snow advisory for that part of the state. Mitchell said places like Marshall and Albert Lea should expect 3 to 4 inches of snowfall by the afternoon hours Sunday.
