The National Weather Service says that confidence is increasing for an impactful winter storm to visit Minnesota next week. That said, the storm system is nearly a week away, so there is still much that is not known.

The storm system is not only large, but slow moving, and could last over multiple days -- which increases the snowfall potential.

As of now, the best guess is that the biggest impacts from the storm system across Minnesota would be from Tuesday night through Thursday.

We'll enjoy a nice warmup this weekend with highs in the mid thirties, but we'll want to keep an eye on things for the upcoming work week.

Much can change with a storm system this far out, so snowfall amounts, exact timing, and locations for the heaviest snow are still unknown at this time.
