Glistening snowfall great for recreation

Snow during the past 24 to 36 hours accumulated around 2 inches in the Twin Cities with amounts of 4 inches extending from Sioux Falls, SD to La Crosse, Wis. and on east to the Wisconsin Dells.

A nice snowfall occurred in the Arrowhead region of Minnesota and in Bayfield County, Wisconsin as well. Snowfall reports from Duluth can be seen here.

Late this afternoon, radar continued to paint a nice swath of snow through central Wisconsin.

Snow has been hard to come by from St. Louis to Chicago and in the Red River Valley, but a good portion of the landscape has a nice snowcover heading into the last weekend of 2012. Another 3 to 5 inches of fresh snow are possible from southern Indiana through Pennsylvania later tonight and Saturday.

There doesn’t appear to be any big snowstorms looming in our future. The cold air mass is expected to moderate later next week.

Enjoy your weekend. Paul will be back on Monday.
