Warmer temperatures and drier air kept the Twin Cities from getting the 7-12 inches the National Weather Service forecasted for the Friday-Sunday period but where the heavy snow did fall, it fell in epic amounts. 

Duluth was slammed with more than 21 inches of snow while Brainerd was throttled with more than a foot. Overall, the leaders in the metro area, which appear to be Chanhassen and Maple Grove, picked up a mere 5.5 inches of snow. As MSP Airport, the official three-day tally was 5 inches.
