A dump of fresh snow

Share story

Clouds are exploding with snowflakes this morning from the Dakotas to Minnesota. The predicted heavy snowfall is on track for the southern half of the state. Paul and I are looking for accumulations of from four to seven inches in a large swath from Montevideo to Eau Claire, which includes the Metro.

This is a progressive weather system. The snow will have a sharp back edge and will end from west to east from mid afternoon into the evening. Winds of up to 25 mph will blow the snow through the darkness hours. Chilly air over the region keeps the snowpack in place for your recreational enjoyment Saturday and Sunday.
