Wintry mix possible overnight

If you are driving in Minnesota or western Wisconsin this Sunday afternoon, weather shouldn’t be a problem.

Northwestern and west-central Minnesota will have a chance of rain/snow showers Sunday evening. A mix of light snow, sleet, light rain/drizzle (and possibly light freezing rain/freezing drizzle) moves across much of Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin overnight Sunday night. In the Twin Cities metro area, that light snow or wintry mix should end before sunrise on Monday. Snow continues Monday in northeastern Minnesota and parts of northwestern Wisconsin, with a few inches of accumulation possible in portions of those areas.
