It does not include St. Cloud, but does include areas just to our southeast including Sherburne County and the Twin Cities metro area.
Forecasters say a low pressure system will track into the area, with widespread moderate to heavy precipitation forming. Temperatures will cool Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night, allowing for rain to transition to snow. Four to six inches, with locally higher amounts of seven inches are possible by Wednesday morning.
