The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory effective at 4 p.m. for much of Minnesota, including the Twin Cities. Forecasters say 3 to 5 inches of snow are possible, with up to 6 inches in some areas. The advisory runs through 6 a.m.

The storm is supposed to start with rain spreading southwest to northeast, and changing to snow around nightfall.

According to WCCO, the Minnesota Department of Transportation is reminding drivers to give snowplows plenty of room. MnDOT says new hires have just finished learning how to plow and tons of salt have been stockpiled.

MPR News says drivers should be ready, too.

"The biggest issue quite frankly is that motorists need to prepare themselves with driving in snow and ice conditions," MnDOT spokesman Kevin Gutknecht said. "Make sure your car is ready to deal with winter weather. When you're driving in snow and ice conditions, you need to drive according to the weather and road conditions. Take your time. Slow down."

The average Minnesotan shovels more than nine inches of snow during November.
