Yep. That's snow alright.

The forecast said it might snow. And it snowed.

There it is. There's your proof, in case you needed some.

Minnesota officially has snow, which is what forecasts predicted Thursday.

That photo above was snapped by Donna Maxie in Hibbing, and shared by Todd Nelson of Aeris Weather. He tweeted out a second photo as well.

And Jacquie Whiting in Chisholm shared this photo with KBJR meteorologist Adam Lorch on Facebook.

Where and how much?

The National Weather Service Duluth has been tweeting about snow for hours now.

The first report of snowfall came in at Orr, Minnesota, around 2:52 a.m. Within two hours, snow was recorded in the cities of Cook and Hibbing as well. And here's a visual from an Ely webcam.

The weather service said it looks like 0.1 or 0.2 inches fell in spots, but they won't know for sure until people call in measurements Friday. The snow is expected to peter out in the Northland Friday morning.

Lots o' frost

Even if you didn't get snow, there's frost.

The National Weather Service issued a frost advisory for northwest Minnesota, the entire middle-third of the state, and then the southwest. So on the little map below, it's all the baby blue.

The advisory is in effect until 9 or 10 a.m. for the western edge, but will be active for the eastern region later Friday into Saturday.
