“The Little Storm That Could:”
Now that was a snow event! Monday night’s snow blast hit quick & hard, with rapid accumulation of snow once the intense snowfall rate overcame warm ground.
I was in Lutsen this weekend, and drove smack into the snowy blast as I hit the north metro along I-35 Monday evening. Roads became really, really bad in a hurry.
Here’s a quick post with some images from Monday night.
Snow on the weather lab deck Monday night, with snow streaks caught on camera
Expect very slick roads early this Tuesday AM! (MNDOT cam I-394 near Wayzata)

Get used to the snow. The overall pattern looks favorable for numerous snow systems that could produce heavy snow totals over the next 2 weeks for parts of Minnesota!
