KTTC in Rochester, Minn., says ice accumulation of 1/4 inch or more is possible and continued freezing drizzle could make Monday morning's commute dicey.

A winter weather advisory is also issued for part of the Twin Cities metro area where slippery roads are likely, KARE 11 reports.

KSTP says snow totals of one to two inches are possible by the early evening along with some accumulation of ice.

A freezing rain advisory is also in effect for southwestern Minnesota.
