Snow begins falling as long-duration winter storm moves north into Minnesota


CHANHASSEN, Minnesota — Snow has begun falling in parts of southern Minnesota including the Twin Cities as a winter storm moves north.

A winter storm warning is out for much of southern and western Minnesota, along and west of a line from Glenwood to Litchfield to Faribault and Albert Lea, and it also extends into northwest Iowa and eastern South Dakota. The National Weather Service says snowfall totals over the next two days could top 8 inches for much of west-central and south-central Minnesota, with local amounts near 10 inches possible.

The Twin Cities area and much of the rest of Minnesota is under a winter weather advisory. Totals of 5 to 8 inches are possible Monday and Tuesday from central into east-central Minnesota, and 3 to 5 inches into west-central Wisconsin.
