Minnesota weather: What to expect with more snow on the way

More snow is on the way for portions of the Twin Cities and central Minnesota Tuesday into Wednesday. 

Tuesday will start bright and frozen, with slippery roadways and sidewalks after Monday's rain. Clouds will gradually increase, especially in the afternoon as temperatures top out in the mid-30s. 

Then snowflakes will start flying late Tuesday evening. A winter weather advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 3 p.m. Wednesday for an area that includes the heart of the Twin Cities and north metro, westward toward Willmar, northward through the Interstate 94 corridor to just south of Bemidji, over to Brainerd, Pine City and Hinckley. 

How much snow will we get?

The winter weather advisory area could pick up 2-5 inches of snow with this storm, while the southern fringes of the advisory area could see sleet, especially Tuesday evening. Southern Minnesota could see up to an inch of snow. 

The snow will move out Wednesday afternoon. The high will be around 33 degrees.
