Rain showers Saturday melted snow in the Twin Cities and across Minnesota, causing some flooding in the Mankato area.

Flog is expected into the night, causing difficult visibility on the roads, according to meteorologist Jonathan Yuhas.

And northern Minnesota is experiencing snow tonight.

"It is not a good night to travel anywhere in Minnesota," Yuhas said.

Widespread rain showers began early in the morning. Light showers continued Saturday afternoon in the Twin Cities, especially in the south metro. Western Hennepin County and eastern Wright County also are experienced rain.

The showers made roads icy and slippery north and west of the Twin Cities, especially in the St. Cloud area, where temperatures were near freezing.

In the metro, roads remained wet Saturday with temperatures reaching the high-30's.

Sunset is expected at 6:10 p.m. Daylight savings time begins Sunday.

The rain likely will turn into light snow after 2 a.m. in the Twin Cities, with snow continuing to fall Sunday morning in the metro. The snow storm could continue Sunday night into Monday.

The Rochester area could have 7- to 8 inches of snow Sunday. In northern Minnesota's Iron Range area, the snow is expected to accumulate up to 7 inches.
