Here We Go Again, Sleet, Snow And Rain This Weekend
04/12/2013 - 4:00 AM
Meteorology Professor at St. Cloud State University Bob Weisman says we can expect another wintery mix this weekend.
Weisman says the next storm for Saturday night and Sunday is looking just as strong as our last one. It won’t have quiet as much moisture as the past one, but has the potential of producing moderate precipitation over central Minnesota, mainly between midnight Saturday night and early afternoon Sunday.
Weisman predicts the northern third of Minnesota will have the best chance at 4-8 inches of wet snowfall. In the St. Cloud area Weisman says there's a chance of small accumulation of wet snow between 1-3 inches before about 8:00 a.m. Sunday, then a changeover to sleet and rain. Temperatures will likely be cold enough at the ground for a chunk of Sunday morning, raising the chances for significant icing before it all changes to rain during the late morning or midday.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch between midnight Saturday night and early afternoon Sunday for most of central Minnesota.
