Winter is Officially Here !!

MINNEAPOLIS -- Our first significant winter storm of the season will be winding down Wednesday afternoon. The accumulating snow will be done in the Twin Cities metro area by noon and the rest of the day will be very cold with gusty northwest winds and sub-zero wind-chills.

But a Blizzard Warning is still in effect for the south metro and a Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the north metro Wednesday.

Snowfall accumulations with this storm across the Twin Cities metro range from 3 to 5 inches on the north side to 5 to 6 inches on the south side with some +6 inch amounts toward the Hastings area in the southeast metro. The snowfall totals west and north of the Twin Cities were mostly less than 2 inches while to the south and southeast much higher amounts were reported with over 15" in Winona. Many areas from Albert Lea to Owatonna and east to Rochester picked up 9 to 11 inches of snow. Lake effect snow in northwestern Wisconsin was heavy with over 15" at Bayfield near Madeline Island.

Temperatures will range from 10 degrees (wind-chill -8 below) at noon and then 9 degrees (wind-chill -10 below) at 4 p.m. Sunset Wednesday is 4:32 p.m. Cloudy, windy and very cold Wednesday night - temperatures at 8 p.m. will be around 3 degrees (wind-chill -16 below) then overnight lows by sunrise (7:39 a.m.) Thursday will be near -4 below with wind-chills from -15 to -20 below.
