     Park Rapids and the surrounding region got socked in the kisser by Old Man Winter Sunday.

     At least three inches of snow are expected, according to the National Weather Service.

     For folks who felt they had just said goodbye to that last snow melt, blowing, accumulating snow was the last thing anybody wanted.

     A winter weather advisory remains in the area until 1 p.m.

     “We’re looking at the potential for three inches in the area,” said meteorologist Brad Hopkins of the National Weather Service in Grand Forks. “That’s why we have the advisory out.”

     But Hopkins said warm temperatures will result in much of the accumulation melting throughout the day.
