WITHOUT DATE (WJON News) — Spring will officially arrive on Tuesday, but we’re also predicting wintry weather later this week.

The National Weather Service in Chanhassen says snow accumulation and travel impacts are likely in parts of the region on Thursday, but the exact location and amount of snow is still uncertain.

Chances increase for more rounds of snow over the weekend, but again exact locations and amounts are still uncertain.

Meanwhile, the National Weather Service in Grand Forks says the low pressure will bring a period of snow from central to southeastern North Dakota and west-central Minnesota Wednesday night into Thursday night.

It is not known how much snow, but a 60 percent chance of minor impacts causing hazardous travel is forecast for southeastern North Dakota and west-central Minnesota.

So far this season, St. Cloud has officially had 13.6 inches of snow. Normally we would have 40 inches by this point in the season. We are 26.4 inches below normal. Last season at this point we had 79 inches of snow.

We are currently sitting on the second-least measurable snowfall on record in St. Cloud.
