We could see some snow today, but for many it probably won't stay on the ground.

The National Weather Service in Duluth says rain will transition to snow as colder air makes its way into the region late this afternoon into tonight.

Northwestern Wisconsin is under a winter weather advisory and could pick up 2-4 inches of snow late this afternoon into tonight, meanwhile nearby areas of Minnesota will likely only see light snow totals.

Here's what you can expect:

You can read the original story from Sunday below.

It was a lovely weekend, but Minnesotans should know by now that snow is never out of the question.

Yep, the National Weather Service in Duluth has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the northeast part of the state into northwest Wisconsin – in effect until 7 p.m. Monday.

Rain showers and thunderstorms in the area are expected to turn into wet snow Monday morning and continue into the evening. The NWS is predicting three to five inches of snow, as well as colder temperatures.

And since the snow is mixing with rain, the organization says slush will create slick road conditions on elevated surfaces like bridges, overpasses, and ramps. The heavy, wet snow will also likely cling to trees and power lines.

Snow could happen in the Twin Cities area too. The NWS says rain in southwest through central Minnesota will likely turn to all snow Monday afternoon, with several inches of accumulation possible.

WCCO meteorologist Mike Augustyniak says it’s likely the flakes will fall northwest of the Twin Cities, in a band running from St. Cloud to Duluth.

But before all that happens, much of the state is on the look out for severe weather Sunday.

There's a risk of severe thunderstorms across south central and east central Minnesota Sunday night.

While a tornado or two are possible, the NWS large hail and damaging winds are the biggest threats.
