Better late than never

First wave of snow coats the Huttner Weather Lab today. Dog and owner hunker down.

They say better late than never.

The first wave of snow hit the Huttner Weather Lab at 11:55am and is spreading over the metro during the noon hour. Radar and surface reports indicate a band of heavy snow west of the metro moving in this afternoon.

Here are some snow totals so far:

-Willmar 2.5"

-Hutchinson 3.5"

-St. Stephen 3.5"

-Benson 4"

-Canby 4"

-Mankato 5.5"

-Lamberton 5.5"

-Springfield 6"

-Madison 6"

-Donnelly 7.7"

It looks like our late start may trim snow totals just a bit. Right now 3" to 7" seems like a good range for the metro, down an inch from the 4" to 8" we put out yesterday. There is thunder in southern Minnesota near Albert Lea and along the I-90 corridor, so it's possible to get a few convective snowbursts this afternoon.

Updates as we go through the afternoon.
