The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for Sunday, with snow expected in parts of southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities.

The watch covers 14 counties and cities including Minneapolis, St. Paul, Mankato, Owatonna, Hastings and Red Wing, with 4-8 inches of snow possible in these areas from Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon.

The heaviest snow is expected late Sunday afternoon into Sunday night, before it tapers off Monday morning.

"Roads will likely becoming snow covered Sunday afternoon into Monday, leading to difficult driving conditions," the NWS says. "This may impact the Monday morning commute."

The NWS doesn't know exactly where the heaviest snow is going to fall, but if you live in the watch area, the current forecast suggests a minimum accumulation of 4 inches – though this may change before Sunday if the system shifts.
