A number of school districts are calling snow days after heavy snow fell on central and northern Minnesota on Monday, with more set to hit the state on Tuesday, including in the Twin Cities and southern Minnesota.

There was no school on Monday due to it being Presidents Day, but some are pre-emptively calling snow days due to the continuation of the storm system that has already dropped around a foot of snow in some parts of the state.

An estimated 4-7 inches are expected to fall Tuesday in the Twin Cities starting in the morning, while parts of northern Minnesota could see anything from 8-12 inches.
