Just returned from a trip two miles from home. It is extremely dangerous on the roadways. Snow is falling at the rate of more than an inch per hour in Eden Prairie. since 630am I received another four inches of snow, with 6.5 inches total on the deck.
Very heavy wet snow is making it difficult to plow and shovel.
Here is an image of the surface reports. Note as of 9am the circulation center was still in Iowa. The counter clockwise rotation around the low that is moving towards LaCrosse.
Snowfall totals will likely exceed ten inches in some locations.
I've been hearing thunder (not plows) near Phalen. It is absolutely GORGEOUS out there - I can't wait to play!!!
