Tracking snow totals around the Twin Cities, greater Minnesota

Prior Lake wins with a foot of fresh snow!

Snow didn't start in the Twin Cities until just before 9 p.m. Tuesday, but by the time it was all said and done – fairly early Wednesday morning – it left behind some impressive amounts. 

Very few got the foot of snow that the National Weather Service said was possible, but many locations were left to dig out of 6-10 inches after the first significant snowstorm of the 2019-20 winter season for the metro area.

More rain, ice and snow is possible this weekend as a new storm system arrives in the region. The system's impacts will actually start Thursday night into Friday as snow and icing is possible in western and central Minnesota, followed by uncertain impacts for the weekend, according to the weather service. 

"In summary, it does appear that we'll see several waves of precipitation. Also, the better chance for mainly snow lies north of I-94, while the better chance of mainly rain lies south of I-90. There is a wide degree of uncertainty with this type of weather pattern," says the National Weather Service. 

Also, congrats to Minneapolis on setting the record for wettest year since record keeping began. And there's still a month and change to go!
