While only 1.2 inches of snow had fallen at MSP Airport by 6 p.m., the heavier stuff was expected to fall as the evening progressed.

The latest forecast for the Twin Cities had the metro getting between 3-5 inches, with the south metro expected to get more than the north.

BMTN's Sven Sundgaard says that those living in the I-494/694 loop can expect to get around 4 inches when all is said and done.
