Since 5am snow has increased in intensity in east central Minnesota. I measured 2.5 inches of accumulation at 635am. Snow flakes were good quality. Heavy wet snow is likely to fall through the morning. Be prepared for slow travel and very slick conditions. Don’t follow too close.
Rain was falling from Rochester to Red Wing to Eau Claire.
