A midday adjustment from the National Weather Service now puts the Twin Cities and counties along the Highway 12 corridor in a winter storm warning until 10 p.m. Tuesday.
The latest from the National Weather Service:
"A Winter Storm Warning is now in effect for areas along and near the US-12 corridor, from Montevideo and Granite falls east to the Twin Cities in Minnesota, over to Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls in Wisconsin. A winter weather advisory remains in effect for regions north and south of the warning.
"Snow will continue to overspread much of the area today, with snowfall rates between 1 and 2 inches per hour expected through much of the afternoon. Widespread snowfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches is expected, with locally higher amounts are possible within the warning area. The afternoon commute will be impacted, so plan for additional travel time. Mixed precipitation, including freezing drizzle, is possible toward the end of the event this evening, and near I-90 where a mixture with rain is more likely."
