Last weekend, I put my snowblower in storage because I didn't think I would need it again (fingers crossed) until next winter, but there is snow in the forecast for Minnesota this week. Read how much we're expected to get and when it's expected to fall below.

Minnesota Weather: Thunderstorms Friday, Snow Friday Night

Rochester and Minneapolis will get thunderstorms during the day on Friday with snow during the evening.

Thankfully, I won't have to dig my snowblower out of storage.

Rochester and the Twin Cities area are expected to get 1-3 inches on Friday night. Parts of northern Minnesota could get even more.
