(Mankato, MN) – It might be time to break out the winter gear amid the COVID-19 breakout.

Measurable snow is looking likely in the forecast for southern Minnesota late in the week.

According to the National Weather Service, a rainy Thursday will turn snowy, dropping roughly three inches of snow in the area.  Local forecasters are predicting the possibility of even more accumulations, with meteorologist Mark Tarello calling for 3 – 6 inches of snow.  Gusty winds up to 35 miles per hour will make for blustery conditions Thursday and Friday.

Temperatures are forecast to make a nice rebound on Saturday, with sunny skies and a high near 43, but conditions will be windy.

The possibility of snow doesn’t end this week, however.  A chance of white stuff is in the National Weather Service forecast on Monday and Tuesday.
