Life in a snow globe


Snow slows traffic at 494 & 169 in the southwest metro today

Here we go again. Another slow slippery commute in the metro.

The jet stream is sending snow impulses our way every 48 hours or so these days. It's starting to add up to a pile in many areas. Snow cover is impressive around much of the Midwest for mid-December. There is snow on the ground all the way south into New Mexico and Arkansas.

Our latest shot this evening will bring 1" to 3" to the metro. Mankato, Owatonna and the I-90 corridor may see 2" to 4" with this system.
