Parts of Minnesota got almost a foot of snow overnight, although much less fell in the Twin Cities.
The National Weather Service posted a report of 10 inches of snow in Ogilvie, between the Twin Cities and Lake Mille Lacs. Isanti got 8 inches and the St. Cloud Airport reported 7.4 inches of new snow early Wednesday morning.
The accumulation tapered off in the middle of the night for most of Minnesota, leaving 2.3 inches officially at the Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport.
The storm left streets covered with warm, slushy snow for this morning's commute, and in the Twin Cities Metro Transit is advising riders to take an earlier bus. Trains were on time before the start of rush hour.
