Snowstorm recap; a breezy and mild Sunday

Share story

The official snow tally at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport was 6 inches on Saturday.

That's a new record snowfall for February 24 in the Twin Cities.

The all time record snowfall for a calendar day in the Twin Cities is 18.5 inches, on November 1, 1991.

St. Cloud measured 6 inches from Saturday's storm, and Duluth had 7.2 inches.

The National Weather Service will update its snowfall map as new snowfall reports arrive. It’s a zoomable map, and you can hover over a point to get details about the location and the time of the snow measurement.

Snow lingers up north

Some periods of snow continue in parts of northern Minnesota this Sunday morning.

A winter storm warning in part of northeastern Minnesota, and a winter weather advisory in north-central Minnesota expire at 9 a.m.:
