MINNEAPOLIS — Temporary parking restrictions have been imposed in Minneapolis, St. Paul and several suburbs so plows can clear away as much as a half-foot of snow from the latest storm to hit winter-weary Minnesota.

It's the sixth snow emergency of the winter for Minneapolis, which usually declares only three in a normal winter.

The National Weather Service measured 6.4 inches of snow Monday at its forecast office in Chanhassen, and reports from 4 to more than 5 inches were common from Willmar in the west to St. Cloud in central Minnesota, and Albert Lea and Mankato in the south.

Temperatures are forecast to soar to around 40 in the Twin Cities on Tuesday for the first time in a month before the weather turns cold again this weekend.
