Rain changing to snow across Minnesota, Wisconsin on Sunday

Areas north of the metro could pick up 2 inches of wet snow today.

Snow flakes will be flying in the Twin Cities, but accumulating snow is likely as rain changes over to snow Sunday morning in northwest Wisconsin, including areas just across the border from east-central Minnesota. 

A winter weather advisory includes the Arrowhead of Minnesota and all of northwest and northern Wisconsin, where 2-4 inches of snow is expected before temperatures warm enough to change the snow back over to rain Sunday afternoon. 

Up to two inches of snow could accumulate north of the Twin Cities.

In the Twin Cities, a mix of rain and snow is expected between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., then back to all rain after 3 p.m. The daytime high is only 38 in the metro area. Don't be surprised if an inch or so of snow accumulates in grassy areas. 

The next storm system arrives Monday into Tuesday, but temperatures should be warm enough for mostly rain to fall, although some light accumulations of snow are possible in central and northern Minnesota as rain changes over to snow Monday night into Tuesday morning.
