Rochester, MN - (KROC AM News) -  The Rochester area remains under a winter weather advisory through midnight Tuesday, while areas to the west remain under a winter storm warning.

The National Weather Service is indicating the latest forecasting models suggest Rochester could be close to the line between freezing and above freezing temperatures while the brunt of the precipitation from a strong storm moves into the region. That makes snowfall predictions difficult, but the current forecast calls for 1 to 3 inches of snow, possibly mixed with rain, freezing rain and sleet through Tuesday morning. Some additional snow is also possible through the day on Tuesday.

In areas to the west, 4 to 6 inches of snow are being forecast for areas of south-central Minnesota, while areas of southwestern Minnesota could see 6 to 12 inches of snow.
