As for the Twin Cities area, here is what NOAA out of Minneapolis/St. Paul has to say:

A powerful storm system will impact the region Monday night
through Friday, with precipitation coming in two phases. Phase
one will move into western Minnesota late Monday night and move
across Minnesota on Tuesday and into western Wisconsin Tuesday
night. A mix of freezing rain and heavy snow will be possible
Tuesday across western and central Minnesota, with heavy snow
possible Tuesday night in western Wisconsin. Phase two of this
storm will come Thursday and Friday in the form of a prolonged
period of light to moderate snow that will likely lead to a few
inches of snow for most of central and southern Minnesota and
western Wisconsin.

In addition to the precipitation on Tuesday, southeast wind gusts
of 40 to 50 mph will be possible.
