    After snowfall and cold temperatures swept through Minneapolis late in the week, warmer weather is in store for the weekend.

    Snowfall totals ranged from six to eight inches across the area.

    “It looks pretty nice for Saturday,” AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Alyson Hoegg said.

    Temperatures will rise into the upper 40s through the weekend, slightly below the average for this time of year which is in the lower 50s, she said.

    Overnight lows will hover above freezing, with rising temperatures through the weekend and the start of the workweek.

    “I don’t see much as far as precipitation Saturday,” Hoegg said, adding there will be a chance for some light rain or spotty showers.

    Sunday looks to be a drier day with highs in the mid-50s.

    “There is definitely a warming trend coming up,” she said.

    Showers will return to Minneapolis early in the week.

    On Monday, low pressure will return to the area and move off to the North, sparking a few showers and drizzle throughout the day.

    “It will be a damp, dreary day,” Hoegg said.

    Showers will remain in the area Tuesday, but most of the rain will be off to the east. Temperatures will rise into the high 50s.
