A persistent snow storm brought some significant amounts to many Minnesota communities over Monday and Tuesday this week. Areas along the north shore (near Lake Superior) from Duluth to Finland reported snowfall totals from 9 to 13 inches. Across portions of southern Minnesota some observers reported record-setting or record-tying amounts, including 7.5 inches at North Mankato, 7.4 inches at Hutchinson, and 7.0 inches at Waseca and Owatonna.
More snow is seen for Christmas Eve and perhaps Christmas Day in southeastern sections of the state. In addition more snow is possible before the end of the month next Friday, so additional snowfall records may be in store for some communities.
Meteorologist Mark Seeley discusses the weather with Cathy Wurzer.
