@CraigDebbieNels We receive the official 24-hour observation from the St. Cloud observer every morning at 7AM, so this event wasn't captured in today's report.
Official snowfall totals through 12PM:
MSP Airport: 0.5"
Chanhassen WFO: 0.9"
Eau Claire, WI : 0.6"
Here's a look at the incoming snowfall from a recent (730 AM) @MnDOT plow camera along MN-25 near Monticello. #mnwx
@CL1974MN You can look at our entire suite of winter snowfall maps, which covers both events, on our winter weather website at weather.gov/mpx/winter
But, yes, between both events, the metro will receive roughly 3".
Look for snow to overspread much of the Twin Cities metro area by 830 AM. The snow will taper off later this morning, after dropping amounts from a trace (south metro) to around 1.5" (north metro). #mnwx
Snow, possibly mixed with some freezing rain, is expected to spread across southern MN into western WI Thursday night. Accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are likely across southern MN, tapering off gradually to the north.
A band of snow will spread east this morning across central MN and northwest WI, dropping 1 to 3 inches. The snow could be heavy for a short time and bring impacts to the morning commute.
Two rounds of winter weather are expected this week:
1️⃣ Snow late tonight into Wednesday across central Minnesota into northern Wisconsin
2️⃣ Snow and wintry mix across southern Minnesota into western Wisconsin Thursday afternoon into Friday morning/afternoon. #mnwx #wiwx
Two rounds of light snow are expected for central MN today and tomorrow with totals of less than 2". Attention then turns to a system that could bring a few inches of snow to southern MN. We don't have high confidence on timing or amounts right now, so stay tuned... #mnwx #wiwx
There will be some small chances for light snow for parts of the forecast area this week. Temperatures will be fairly seasonable. #mnwx #wiwx
@HSC14717 A quick check revealed 385 local storm reports for Hail.
Low chances for snow are in the forecast for much of the week. Accumulations, if any, will be minor.
Cooler temperatures return with daytime highs generally in the 20s. A wintry mix is possible along the I-90 corridor tonight and more widespread light snow Tuesday into Wednesday morning. #mnwx #wiwx
After a cold start to the weekend, warmer temperatures are in store for today. Multiple rounds of light snow are possible through this week, but total accumulation through Wednesday will be two inches or less with northern and central MN seeing the bulk of the snow. #mnwx #wiwx
Warmer temperatures expected Sunday and Monday before we cool down again. A few dustings of snow are also possible with the best chance occurring on Tuesday. #mnwx #wiwx
November was warmer than average with record highs occurring at all 3 climate sites on November 2nd. The Twin Cities and Eau Claire also received above normal snowfall. #mnwx #wiwx
Here is the fall climate summary for the Twin Cities, St. Cloud, and Eau Claire. Temperatures were above normal for the period. We were below normal for rainfall but, interestingly, the Twin Cities and Eau Claire did receive above normal snowfall. #mnwx #wiwx
We want to see where all of our spotters are across the nation! Before #Skywarn22 ends today, check in using the link below and see yourself on the map. It’s very easy, and it lets us acknowledge all of our spotters!

Heading out this morning? Bundle up! Expect wind chills to remain 10-20 degrees below zero through this morning before winds become light this afternoon. Sunday will be warmer with a chance for light snow overnight into Monday. #mnwx #wiwx
We're starting to see snow on the roads, but the worst conditions this evening are down by New Ulm and Mankato. There, a quick burst of rain ahead of the temperature crash got roads wet, which have now iced up as temps have plunged into the teens. #mwnx
Are you a trained spotter/HAM Radio operator?
1) Thank you for helping the NWS!
2) #Skywarn22 is a day to acknowledge you!
3) Help us show the world the amazing spotter network we have by checking into this map.

@_waikataititi Dry air. Most of the Twin Cities isn't receiving precipitation just yet.
Rain is falling east of the Minnesota River Valley from Mankato to the southeast metro. Temps are quickly falling which will cause wet surfaces to freeze. Be very careful when traveling due to icy road conditions!
Rain will eventually change to snow. #mnwx #wiwx
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for across western & south-central Minnesota. A quick burst of snow and gusty winds will create areas of hazardous blowing snow and reduced visibility this evening. Temperatures plummet with overnight lows in the single digits #mnwx #wiwx
@MN_JJM Yes, and winds will increase through the evening with max gusts near 40 mph around midnight.
@brandospratt7 The timing of snow for the metro will be from 5pm-8pm. Less than an inch of snow is expected but very gusty winds should cause it to blow around. Wind chills will fall to -2F by 11pm.
