The National Weather Service says that several inches of snow are possible during the day on Tuesday.

An area from southwest Minnesota, northeast into western Wisconsin -- including Mankato, Faribault, Owatonna, Rochester, Red Wing, and the Twin Cities can expect between 2 and 5 inches of new snow.

Timing will be unfortunate, affecting both the morning and evening commute in the Twin Cities. Most areas will see accumulating snow, with the exception of far western Minnesota.

Plan on slippery road conditions. Patchy blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility. The hazardous conditions could impact the morning and evening commute. Slow down and use caution while traveling. You can get the latest road conditions by calling 511.

Cold air will fill in behind the system, bringing the coldest temps so far this season.
