The second wave of a spring storm packing rain, sleet and snow is spreading across parts of Minnesota.

KSTP.com Meteorologist Ken Barlow says overnight a slushy mix of snow and sleet could result in an inch or two of accumulation by Wednesday morning.

Ken says we'll see periods of light snow and mixed precipitation during the day Wednesday that could produce another 1 to 3 inches.

The third wave of the storm will arrive Wednesday night, bringing heavier snow that will last into Thursday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning through 7 p.m. Thursday for much of the southern half of the state and western Wisconsin.

Parts of southwestern Minnesota could get 12 inches or more of snow by the time the storm tapers off Thursday. The central portion of the state and Twin Cities metro, could see 6 to 12 inches. Areas along I-90 in southern Minnesota could get 4 to 8 inches. Western Wisconsin could get 5 to 10 inches.
