ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – We’re starting the week on a quiet note with the prospect of another mild day across the area. Warm air will blow into the Upper Mississippi Valley on gusty south winds that will develop ahead of a large storm system to our west. Sunshine will give way to thickening clouds during the day, but even with limited sunshine, high temperatures will be in the low 40s, several degrees warmer than the seasonal average. Gusts will reach 30 miles per hour, so it won’t feel like the 40s necessarily, but instead, our wind chill indices at best will be in the mid-30s.

We'll have increasing clouds today with gusty winds and high temps will be in the low 40s.

Clouds will hang around tonight with a diminishing south breeze and temperatures will be in the low 30s.

Light snow will mix with rain at times early Tuesday morning. A gradual change to all snow will take place in the late morning with light to moderate accumulation likely in the afternoon. Temperatures will briefly warm to the mid-30s around lunchtime before falling back to the low 30s and upper 20s later in the afternoon. As it stands right now, we’ll have two to four inches of snowfall around Rochester with slightly higher totals to the northwest where five or six inches will be possible. Snowfall from south of Interstate 90 to north Iowa will be lighter, generally one to two inches. A brisk north breeze will keep wind chill levels in the teens and 20s.

We'll have light to moderate snowfall across the area on Tuesday.
