Cloudy with snow showers this morning becoming a steady accumulating snow later on. High temperatures in the low 20s.
A look ahead at the winter storm:
Moving forward into Wednesday, the possibility is there for three to six inches and some rather slick roads by Wednesday morning. By 7 a.m. to 8 a.m., you’ll notice the snow tapers to flurries and then to nothing or occasional flakes. We’re calling this our Wednesday lull.
Then Wednesday afternoon into the evening, winds pick up out of the northwest, gusting 40 to 50 miles per hour, causing low visibility, blowing and drifting snow and some very disruptive, if not dangerous, travel overnight Wednesday evening into Thursday noon, with 9 to 12 inches possible.

Driver’s licenses for all bill passes Minnesota Senate
The Minnesota Senate has approved the “driver’s licenses for all” bill, the culmination of a long-running campaign to give tens of thousands of undocumented immigrants the right to drive legally in Minnesota.
The bill, dubbed “driver’s licenses for all,” would allow the estimated 81,000 undocumented immigrants in Minnesota to take the state’s knowledge test and receive a driver’s license.
It passed the House last month, and was approved in the Senate by a 34-31 vote early Wednesday after hours of discussion. It now heads to Gov. Tim Walz’s desk for his signature. He is expected to sign it.
