Two rain chances?

This is something new. Not one, but two potential shots of rain in the next few days?

The NAM is printing out temps mariginally cold enough for at least a chance of snow early Tuesday morning. Some wet snow flakes can’t be ruled out.

Saturday’s system looks impressive, and has at least the chance to produce a widespread, meaningful, soaking rain for much of Minnesota.
