UNDATED (WJON News) -- The National Weather Service has issued a special weather statement for central Minnesota.

The first widespread accumulating snow event of the season will begin across western Minnesota late Sunday night, spread east to the I-35 corridor by mid-morning Monday, and then overspread western Wisconsin around midday.

Snow totals of one to three inches are likely before the steadier snow ends Monday evening.

So far this season St. Cloud has had just two-tenths of an inch of snow.  Normally, we'd have about 3.3 inches of snow by this point in the season.

Some patchy freezing drizzle is possible Monday night south of I-94, with little or no ice accumulation.
