A late arrival

Share story

Snow was late in arriving in the Twin Cities, but the flakes are flying in the southwest metro at noon.

Snow accumulations of up to six inches have been reported in west central Minnesota in the past twelve hours. Since the heavy snow was delayed in east central Minnesota it may cut down on the overall accumulation. I am still thinking four to seven inches.

We will continue to watch the radar, surface reports and the track of the surface low pressure out of Kansas City headed towards Chicago.

Plan on a slow go for your evening commute. We would be pressed to call it a rush hour.
