A quick-hitting and heavy snowfall is currently dumping anywhere from three to as much as six inches of snow across the Twin Cities, KSTP Meteorologist Ken Barlow says. The timing of the snow couldn’t have been worse -- right during the morning drive.

Although many people have the day off and most schools are not in session because of President's Day, it was still a slow morning commute. Winds are also gusty, peaking at 30 mph across the metro before calming down a bit this afternoon.

A Winter Storm Warning from the Twin Cities area to the east, into western and central Wisconsin, is in effect until noon Monday.

The snow should melt quickly with temperatures nearing 40 degrees on Tuesday and Wednesday.
