Play video Weather across the North Central region is detailed in the above video.

In addition to enduring frigid air, Minneapolis will see nuisance snow return this weekend.

Temperatures in Minneapolis will struggle to climb out of the single digits Sunday, followed by temperatures below zero Sunday night.

While not howling, winds will blow enough to hold RealFeel® temperatures below zero throughout all of Sunday.

The cold will set the stage for a storm to deliver snow on Sunday. A total of 1 to 3 inches is expected to accumulate through Sunday evening.

With temperatures so low, the snow will be fluffy in nature and easy to shovel. Some residents will even be able to use their leaf blowers to push the snow off driveways and sidewalks.

However, vehicle tires running over the snow could still lead to slick travel.

Fresh cold in the wake of the snow will lead to highs in the single digits on Monday.
