A forecast of ice and snow Sunday has led to National Weather Service in Chanhassen to declare a Winter Weather Advisory for the Twin Cities area on Sunday, the Pioneer Press reports.

The NWS says that they expect freezing rain in the mid to late morning, which should transition to snow in as the cold air rolls in. Ice accumulation could be a tenth of an inch or more, and the snow could total 1 to 2 inches.

Areas of western Wisconsin could get as much as 4 to 5 inches of snow, the NWS says.

KARE-TV reports a high of about 30 degrees is expected for Sunday, and mild temperatures should last into the middle of the week along with potential for snow Monday and Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the NWS has issued a Winter Storm Warning Sunday for southeastern Minnesota, the Austin Daily Herald reports.

A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is expected to move into the area Sunday morning, and while only 1 to 2 inches of precipitation is expected, the NWS says travel could be "hazardous or nearly impossible due to the various types of wintry precipitation."

The Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 9 a.m. Sunday until midnight.
