Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Roads in southeastern Minnesota could become slick late this afternoon and evening as an area of light snow moves across the region.

The National Weather Service is predicting the Rochester area will see 1 to 3 inches of snow before midnight. Forecasters say it's possible some areas in southeastern Minnesota could see 4 inches of new snow before the system moves off to the east early Monday.

Another wave of low pressure could bring slippery precipitation to the region Monday night and into Tuesday. At this point, the National Weather Service is forecasting only about an inch of additional snow in the Rochester area but is advising some light freezing rain or drizzle could develop Tuesday morning.

Forecasters are predicting another round of light snow on Wednesday and are keeping a close eye on a developing storm system that could hit southeastern Minnesota on Friday. The National Weather Service says this system could tap into moist air from the Gulf of Mexico and heightened the chances for a more significant snow event.
