The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect through midnight tonight for all of central Minnesota, where 4 to 6 inches of snow is expected.

In addition to the snow, falling temps and strong winds will create areas of blowing and drifting causing slick road conditions and reduced visibility. Wind chills will drop to near -35°.
