The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for portions of central Minnesota in effect from 11 PM tonight through 1 PM tomorrow -- including Benton, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Sherburne, Stearns, and Wright counties.

Rain will fall across central Minnesota before a cold front pushes through overnight. Temperatures will rapidly fall below freezing behind the front which will turn the rain to
freezing rain, then sleet, and eventually snow.

Ice accumulation of one to two tenths of an inch and snow accumulation of an inch or less are expected in the Winter Weather Advisory area.
