The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for the northern half of Minnesota, and a Winter Weather Advisory for the southern half of the state in effect from this afternoon through noon Monday.
The Winter Storm Warning includes Kanabec, Mille Lacs, Morrison, and Todd counties (and areas to the north) where 5 to 7 inches of snow are expected, along with winds gusting as high as 35 mph.
The Winter Weather Advisory includes Benton, Sherburne, Stearns, and Wright counties (and areas to the south) where 4 to 6 inches of snow are expected, along with winds gusting as high as 40 mph.
