List of reports from the 2 NWS Offices


Not sure I buy the 17.0" in Owatonna since its from a public report. Person maybe measured in an area with a little drift? A trained spotter did measure 13.5" though in another area of Owatonna

14" in West Concord.





This is showing the snow totals just from the Airport NWS Climo sites..

There's 2 Minneapolis sites that measure official snowfall.

Incredible gradient!

Minneapolis-St. Paul: 12.4"
NWS Minneapolis/Chanhassen: 11.0"
Rochester: 8.0"
St. Cloud: 0.0" !

I got about 12" in my location - measured 3 different spots. The news just reported that school buses got stuck and many kids didn't get home til 11:00 p.m. - parents went wild.


I got the walkways shoveled but I have to hit the drive this a.m. before the sun makes this snow 3 times heavier.

Fortunately I made it home pretty easily around 11 pm. The side roads were challenging, but 35w and 35 south to Lakeville were fine at about 45 mph or so. Btw, minivans handle really well in the snow.

I think our official snow total in Lakeville was 12.2 inches.

About to set out on another adventure, as I’m headed from Lakeville up to Wyoming in Chisago County for a 10 a.m. appointment. Giving myself a full 2 hours to get up there.

Lakeville schoools closed today.

The Wild players took 2hrs or more to get to the X that night. They apparently almost had to cancel the game.

Snowy Saturday today across Minnesota. Temps in the 20s and some teens in some areas.

More "might" be coming Wednesday night for SouthEastern portions

Yes, it's been snowing for hours. I went out an hour ago and shoveled the first 4" - I have a long driveway and it's easier if I do this in layers. I may have another 4" in the morning. It is pretty out there - everything is hushed - so quiet. I have 4 huge pine trees in my backyard and they are covered.


Thanks fo checking in, Cambium

Ahh, the muteness of snow. Love that. I assume with those temps its not heavy wet snow? Pine trees and wet snow dont mix well.

I like shoveling in layers too. Sometimes a pain when you have so much to go out there multiple times, but I agree, its just easier. Plus I love being out there and measure every hour

Oh no not again!

Winter Storm Warning

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Twin Cities/Chanhassen MN
310 PM CST Sun Mar 4 2018

...HEAVY SNOW EXPECTED MONDAY INTO MONDAY NIGHT...

.A winter storm warning is in effect from northwest Minnesota
through southeast Minnesota and west central Wisconsin from Monday
morning through Tuesday morning. A winter weather advisory
is in effect for surrounding locations where less snow is
expected.

Rain will change over to heavy snow Monday morning. The highest
snow totals are expected in the Cambridge, Princeton, and Mora
region. In addition, northeast winds gusting to 40 mph will lead
to some blowing and drifting snow. Given the possibility of high
snowfall rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour, we anticipate very
difficult travel across the area on Monday. At this point the
worst travel conditions are expected Monday afternoon and evening.

There is still some uncertainty on when the precipitation will
change to snow and when the heaviest snow will occur. It is
possible that the Monday morning commute could also be
significantly impacted by wintry weather, so check for forecast
updates and plan accordingly.
