The forecast remains consistent with 6+ inches across western and southern Minnesota, with a very tight gradient along the Mississippi River. Little, if any, snow may fall northeast of there. More precipitation is expected on Monday, although primarily rain is expected. Temperatures will warm slightly to near-normal values for the middle of the upcoming week.
