Winter may be here early for residents in some parts of the region


ST. PAUL — The season’s first significant snowfall for most Minnesotans could bring more than half a foot in some places by Wednesday morning.

The National Weather Service issued a winter storm advisory for a broad swath of the state. The weather service predicts moderate to heavy snow will move into southwestern Minnesota this afternoon, on the heels of a cool rain, and make a beeline to the northeast, reaching western Wisconsin by 6 p.m.
