Winter storm approaches, bringing anything from an inch to a foot of snow

Twin Cities could get a little bit of everything.

The Twin Cities and points south and east are in a Winter Weather Advisory for snow and freezing rain Monday and Tuesday, and areas of northern Minnesota are in a Winter Storm Warning for snow that's already started falling in some areas. 

Where will the most snow fall?

According to the National Weather Service, western and west-central Minnesota can expect snow totals of 4-7 inches by the time the storm wraps up Tuesday evening. 

More specifically, here's what's in line for key landmarks across the state: 

  • Twin Cities: 2-3 inches
  • Willmar: 4-6 inches
  • St. Cloud: 4-8 inches
  • Morris: 6-8 inches
  • Alexandria: 6-8 inches
  • Mankato: 1-2 inches
  • Red Wing: 1-2 inches

Snow in most of those areas isn't expected to start falling until late Sunday or early Monday. Snow is already falling, however, in parts of northern Minnesota, and Duluth could end up with 4-8 inches on Sunday alone, with even more in parts of the arrowhead and north shore. 

Meanwhile, far southeastern Minnesota will experience dangerous travel conditions with freezing rain becoming likely Monday and Tuesday, with as much as a 1/4 inch or more accumulating. 

The Twin Cities could get a tenth of an inch of ice in addition to 2-3 inches of snow. 

Winds will also be a factor Sunday-Tuesday in southern Minnesota, including the Twin Cities where gusts could reach 30+ mph. Gusts will be 40+ in far southern Minnesota.
