Here are listings of snow and wind reports from across Minnesota, as relayed by National Weather Service offices as of 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

While snow totals outside of southeast Minnesota are not particularly heavy, the gusty northwest winds have created significant snowdrifts along rural highways.

February 2019 is now not just the snowiest February on record in the Twin Cities — but also the sixth-snowiest month overall on record for the metro area; records go back to 1884. 

The Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has received 35.7 inches of snow so far in February, compared to 7.7 inches for an average February.
