Poll: Will Shakopee Have A White Christmas?
Will the snow survive the onslaught of rain forecast this weekend?
After the winter storm last weekend that dumped 10.3 inches of snow on Shakopee, the ingredients appeared right for a white Christmas.
The beautiful photos of the winter wonderland and the promise of dropping temperatures seemed to seal the deal.
Yet with rain forecast for Shakopee and the Twin Cities on Saturday, the chances of a snowy holiday may be fading. Temperatures on Saturday are expected to be above freezing, with a high of 37 in Shakopee.
While Sunday is expected to be colder and could see 1 to 3 inches of snow, for the Twin Cities area that snow may more aptly be described as slush, according to MPR. Sunday's high is 30.
Will the snow survive the onslaught of rain and slush?
Even if it doesn't, there may be hope. There is the potential for snow next week, according to the National Weather Service, and temperatures will be cooler.
