Minnesotans are getting a sneak peek at winter. A November storm moved across the state Tuesday evening and dumped several inches of snow.
In southwestern Minnesota, a trained spotter measured 8.5 inches of snow about 6 miles to the east-southeast of Marshall.

The National Weather Service says a spotter estimated 8 inches of snow 5 miles north-northwest of Holland.
Other snowfall reports include 3.5 inches near Kingston and in Granite Falls and 3 inches in Sacred Heart.

A National Weather Service map shows reports of snowfall totals between 1 and 3 inches across parts of the Twin Cities metro. meteorologist Patrick Hammer says sunshine will help melt some of the snow Wednesday and most of it will be gone Thursday. The next chance of precipitation, in the form of light rain, arrives later on Friday.
