Winter packed a mighty punch in the first storm of the winter season. 

Snow and sleet graced wide swaths of central and northern Minnesota on Monday. Parts of the state could see up to a foot of snow by noon on Tuesday. A cold snap is forecast for later in the week.

It appears winter has arrived and intends to stay.
