It now appears we are truly entering into winter with cold temps coming later this week followed by the potential for a real whopper of a winter storm, if things shake out and track the way meteorologists are thinking they will, this weekend. Last week was just practice for what may lay ahead for this weekend.

The National Weather Service Twin Cities this morning posted about the potential winter storm, in which it showed a graphic of a majority of the southern 2/3s of the state seeing some form of precipitation Saturday into Saturday night and then again on Sunday.

It should be noted that the National Weather Service was non-committal on the entire winter storm as A. it's still pretty far out in terms of predictability, and B. things change.

Remember last week's snowfall? Predictions were for 7-10 inches of snow to fall, that didn't happen here, as the snow that fell was wet and heavy rather than the drier and lighter snow they thought would fall.

It wouldn't be a bad idea to keep an eye on the forecast as the week begins to wrap up, as we are also looking at our first below-zero readings of 2021 for Friday night into Saturday as temps are expected to be around -5 for a low.
