The storm that keeps on giving!

The changeover to snow occurred as expected overnight. Heavy snow bursts dropped visibilities and laid down a quick 2″ to 4″ in the metro.

Expect snow to taper from the south in the Twin Cities for a while this morning, whil the storm rages north and west of the metro.

As you would expect, travel is very difficult from the metro north & west.

Plan plenty of extra time today!

    We have 8 to 9 inches of wet heavy snow in Montevideo as of this morning. I’ve been waiting all winter for this!

    It’s blowing harder in Duluth than in Tropical Cyclone Irina. Go Northland!!
