The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for the southern half of Minnesota, in effect through 6 PM Tuesday. 6 to 8 inches of snow is expected in the St. Cloud area.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be prepared for snow covered roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving.
