A blizzard warning is in effect for western Minnesota, and the National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for eastern Minnesota. KSTP Chief Meteorologist Dave Dahl reports those wind gusts could top 40 miles per hour.

Rush hour will be rainy, Dahl says, and snow should start falling around 8 p.m. and last into the early morning. Anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of snow is expected, so the morning commute will be sloppy and slow. 

After a warm start to the week and a record temp on Monday, Dahl said the temperature is supposed to fall quickly and will probably end up 10 degrees below average for most of the week. The snow is here to stay, and overnight lows are expected to drop into single digits and hover above zero.
