Record-Setting Warmth Precedes Potential Snow In Twin Cities

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) -- Record-setting warm temperatures are forecast in the Twin Cities Tuesday, but winter isn't quite done in the area yet.

WCCO Meteorologist Lisa Meadows expects a high of 66 degrees and breezy with mostly sunny skies.

Meadows said a "sloppy weather system" is headed this way overnight into Wednesday. It will begin with light rain Tuesday night and potentially develop into thunderstorms midday Wednesday before wrapping up that night.

A little bit of snow could sneak its way in, but it shouldn't accumulate.

Farther north and northwest in the state, though, 2 to 3 inches of snow are possible. The Duluth area is under a winter storm watch.

Wednesday's high will be around 48 in the Twin Cities.
