A fast-moving clipper is making roads slippery today

Up to 6 inches of snow is expected in central Minnesota.

The commutes could be a little slippery Monday.

A fast-moving Alberta clipper is bringing up to 6 inches of snow to northern and eastern Minnesota Monday, the National Weather Service says. A winter weather advisory is in effect for parts of northern and central Minnesota through 9 p.m.

The alert warns there could be two rounds of snow with this system – one in the morning (it'll bring the heaviest snow during the late morning) and a second round will move through the Northland in the late afternoon.

The heaviest snow is expected to fall in an area that includes Bemidji, Brainerd and Duluth. Here's a map of how much snow we could get by Monday night:

The National Weather Service says the snow could reduce visibility to less than a half mile, and snow-covered roads could be slippery. This two things combined could make for a slower evening commute. You can check the latest road conditions online here.

The clipper won't affect the Twin Cities too much. Only about an inch of snow is expected in the metro area and maybe some rain in the afternoon, while St. Cloud is forecast to pick up about 2 inches, the National Weather Service's website shows.

There's also a wind advisory in effect for southwestern Minnesota from 2 p.m. to midnight Monday. The area could see wind gusts of up to 50 mph.

Temperatures in that area are also expected to be pretty warm, with highs in the 40s. But later this week, below-normal temperatures are expected across the state, the weather service says. Highs in the Twin Cities will be in the teens and 20s for the second half of the week.
