National Weather Service forecaster Lisa Schmit says it looks like St. Cloud will pick up three to six inches of snow from a clipper-type storm system that will drop southeast from western Canada.

The snow will begin late Tuesday night and mis with rain early Wednesday before changing back to snow late Wednesday afternoon.

Schmit says the heaviest snow will fall along U.S. Highway 2 in north-central Minnesota. They could get 6 to 8 inches. A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for areas along and north of a line from Long Prairie to Cambridge.

Any snow that does fall will be gone by Easter weekend, when high temperatures climb back into the 50s.

St. Cloud saw a record low temperature Tuesday morning at 16 degrees. That broke the old record of 17 set in 1943.
