Snow totals are trickling in across southern Minnesota following the state's first legitimate winter storm of the 2018-19 snow season. 

Leading the way is an 11-inch report out of Lakefield in southwest Minnesota, while the largest total near the metro area is 7.5 inches in Elk New Market (southwest of Lakeville). 

  • Lakefield - 11 inches
  • Winnebago - 9 inches
  • Windom - 8.3 inches
  • Waterville - 8.1 inches
  • Mankato - 8 inches
  • Elko New Market - 7.5 inches
  • Fairmont - 7.2 inches
  • Rochester - 7.1 inches
  • Marshall - 7 inches
  • La Crosse (WI) - 7 inches
  • Minneota - 7 inches
  • Wykoff - 6.9 inches
  • Faribault - 6.8 inches
  • Waterville - 6.5 inches
  • Grand Meadow - 6 inches
  • Hudson (WI) - 5.6 inches
  • Waseca - 5.5 inches
  • Chanhassen - 5.3 inches
  • Lakeville - 4.8 inches
  • Prior Lake - 4.5 inches
  • Burnsville - 4.5 inches
  • Wabasha - 3.4 inches
  • Blaine - 3.3 inches
  • MSP Airport - 2.3 inches

Some of these numbers were reported late Saturday night and are preliminary because snow continued to fall overnight, likely boosting the totals just a bit. You can check out the latest snowfall reports from the National Weather Service right here

If you live in Minneapolis, St. Paul or any of the surrounding suburbs you likely received anywhere from 2-5 inches of snow.  

It'll continue snowing in southeast Minnesota through about noon and another 1-2 inches are possible. 

Travel will continue to be tricky today across southern Minnesota. As of 8:15 a.m., most main roads were partially to fully covered in snow (outside of the metro), as noted by the pink color in the MnDOT map below.
