It won't be a lot of snow, but some occasional flakes will lead to a few inches of fluff for some. However, our system is split which will lead to a couple different areas of slightly heavier accumulation and then an area of freezing drizzle/mist in between.

The heavier bands will likely be north and southeast of the Twin Cities with much of the metro likely getting a couple inches or so of flakes. Once the snow winds down though, some freezing mist/drizzle may form that could lead to some minor icy spots.

Shovel quickly Tuesday evening because temperatures will tumble at night with subzero wind chills likely by 9 p.m. in the Twin Cities, then heading for the teens below zero by daylight on Wednesday. Wind chills could be close to 30 below zero in parts of northern and western Minnesota.
