Rain will turn to snow in the afternoon Monday across parts of northern Minnesota with temperatures falling and winds increasing. The wind will start to increase by mid-day out of the NW at 20-45 miles per hour with higher gusts.

Winter storm warning in effect from 6 p.m. today to noon Tuesday.

The brief period of snow could bring very low visibilities at times given the strong winds.
