A major cooldown will take place in Minneapolis this week bringing some more snow to the city before warmer weather takes hold of the city in time for the weekend.

To start the week, temperatures on Monday hovered around the 40 F mark, where they will remain through Friday.

Dressing warm will be a must for the Minnesota Twins three-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays lasting through Wednesday.

Evening temperatures will be in 30s for Wednesday's game, which starts at 7:10 p.m. CDT.

Wednesday's game between the Twins and Blue Jays could be in for weather delays, as a mid-April storm system is set to spread snow from the northern Plains through the Upper Midwest into Thursday.

While the city receives 2.5 inches of snow typically in April, it has been a snowy winter already for Minneapolis, receiving well-above their average snowfall.

One to three inches of snow is expected to fall on the city Wednesday evening through Thursday morning. Those out on the roadways Thursday should use caution, as slippery roads are possible.

No precipitation is in the forecast for the rest of the day Thursday but showers will dampen the city on Friday.

However, springlike warmth will return to the city right in time for the weekend with highs in the 50s for both Saturday and Sunday.
