Maintenance crew member Craig Lee rode an ATV to check on the snow-making equipment at Hyland Hills Ski Area on Tuesday afternoon.

A mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow pelted the Twin Cities on Tuesday, slowing rush hour traffic and dumping heavy, wet snow through the night to mark the return of winter after a stretch of unseasonably balmy weather.

The storm was expected to leave total accumulations of 3 to 6 inches across the metro area, slightly less than what was originally forecast, said National Weather Service meteorologist Tyler Hasenstein.

"Early on it was kind of a mixture of everything," said Hasenstein, noting that the storm cut a line across the Twin Cities when it arrived. Sleet and snow dropped on the western half of the metro area, while more freezing rain and sleet fell to the east.
