Roads in the Twin Ports are getting slippery this afternoon as steady light snow moves in the region.
Light snow was falling in Duluth, Superior, Cloquet and on the Iron Range as of 4:30 p.m. The Minnesota Department of Transportation reported that some highways in the region were becoming snow-covered.
Snow and freezing rain could hamper travel across much of Minnesota and Wisconsin through Wednesday, although accumulations are not expected to be heavy.
The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for much of Minnesota and northern Wisconsin - including the Twin Ports - through Wednesday afternoon.
Snowfall is expected to be light in the Northland today, but a total of 2 to 4 inches could fall by Wednesday morning across much of the region. Snow will taper off and end by Thanksgiving Day.
The heaviest snow, up to 6 inches, is expected to fall south of the Twin Ports between Hinckley, the Twin Cities and Eau Claire, Wis.
No snow is expected for the rest of the week. Temperatures are expected to be seasonably mild, with highs in the mid-30s and lows in the mid-20s.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation asks motorists to slow down in snowy conditions and urges drivers to use the 511 traveler information system website and phone app to plan their travel. The system provides road and winter driving conditions for the entire state and links to National Weather Service information. The system is available at www.511mn.org or by dialing 511. Motorists can also download the free 511 app on their smartphones and other mobile devices.
