Here is a snap shot of the regional radar shortly after 9pm. The brighter band of precipitation from about New Richmond, Wisconsin through the Twin Cities to New Ulm depicted the heavier snowfall.
Before shoveling the driveway, I measured 2.5 inches outside the Eden Prairie weather lab at 9pm. Light snow was still falling
The area of snow is expected to continue slowly tracking east overnight. But an additional two inches could fall from just east of the Twin Cities down to Owatonna before 1am.
Cold temperatures will follow in the wake of the snow. It really is quite lovely outdoors this evening, if you don’t have to travel. Get out and enjoy the fresh, high quality snow on Sunday.
Snowfall totals in southeast Minnesota from Anoka to Preston will likely range from two to six inches by 1AM.
