KSTP-TV Meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas says driving conditions will become difficult Saturday evening for metro motorists. Visibility will be reduced between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.

MPR reports the snowfall is just getting started throughout Minnesota. Snow flurries have crossed over from Iowa and are heading north.

Paul Douglas says the metro area should expect between 1 to 3 inches tonight. Southern Minnesota is under a winter weather advisory thru 6 a.m. Sunday and should expect up to 6 inches.

Measurable snow is expected in parts of northern Minnesota, but the Duluth News Tribune says snow isn't expected to hit areas near Superior or Duluth.

KARE-11's Jerrid Sebesta says the snow will taper off early Sunday with much of southern Minnesota getting 3 to 5 inches.
