MINNEAPOLIS - Minnesotans are getting a sneak peek at winter.
A November storm was moving across the state Tuesday evening, dumping several inches of snow.
In southwestern Minnesota, a trained spotter measured 8.5 inches of snow about 6 miles to the east-southeast of Marshall.
The National Weather Service says a spotter estimated 8 inches of snow 5 miles north-northwest of Holland.
Other snowfall reports include 3.5 inches near Kingston and in Granite Falls and 3 inches in Sacred Heart.
Forecasters expect the snow to end across central and southern Minnesota before dawn Wednesday.
