If you live pretty much anywhere in the southern half of Minnesota, you got dumped on by some significant snowfall on Wednesday.
The Twin Cities metro area was in the bullseye of the storm with numerous double-digit snowfall totals, although Belle Plaine, located just southwest of the metro, leads the state with a report of 12.8 inches.
Overall, the National Weather Service was pretty much spot-on with their snowfall forecasts, although the storm overachieved a bit in some locations.

If some of the numbers seem a little low for your area, bear in mind that snow reports should continue to funnel into the National Weather Service as the night goes on.
Bottom line: monthly snowfall records have been broken all over southern Minnesota, including in the Twin Cities where the February record of 26.2 inches set in 1962 has been shattered, with a new record tally of 31.5 inches.
Guess what? More snow is coming Friday, then a short lull before another possible storm system moves through Saturday-Sunday. The exact storm track for the weekend is still unclear.
