While significantly delayed, real winter weather is breaking into Minnesota this week. We have three separate chances of snowfall and frigid air coming by late in the week into the weekend.

Monday into Tuesday brings the first of three snowfalls this week

The first of a few rounds of snow develops Monday into early Tuesday. Snow showers are already going in southwest Minnesota and will expand north and east through the day, wrapping up early Tuesday. We’ll see scattered snow showers in central and southeast Minnesota becoming more steady overnight Monday night.

Forecast precipitation 9 a.m. Monday through 9 p.m. Tuesday
