The snow has arrived

Snow had begun falling across the western and north central parts of Minnesota during the morning hours.  Louisburg, near the Minnesota and South Dakota border, has received two and a half inches of snow as of 9:35 AM.  The area highlighted in yellow below is where the heaviest snow band will set up today.  Snowfall rates may reach one inch per hour at times as the low pressure area tracks through the southeast corner of Minnesota.


Here are my projections for snow totals from this storm across the state.  I’m favoring the GFS for location and amounts with this snow.  One to two inches across the Twin Cities, two to three across central Minnesota and northeastward into Duluth, and the heavy snow occurring across far western Minnesota where as much as four inches may fall.
