First snow of 2010

The upper midwest is receiving it’s first major November winter storm in quite some time. It recent years, the snowstorms have held off for another month. This storm developed very quickly and only showed up on the models as early as Wednesday with Thursday being the full blown warning that significant snow was on it’s way. As of 8 AM on Saturday morning, Shakopee has picked up 5 inches, with areas in the south and west metro seeing 4 to 6 inches of snow already. Isolated areas around MSP may pick up 10 inches when it’s all said and done by Sunday morning. If you are traveling today, be careful. Use your headlights and drive cautiously. Snowplows haven’t been out to clean the roads based what I’m seeing on the MNDOT road cameras.


Enjoy the snow!
