Minnesota Approaching New Record for Snowiest Season


Minnesota is roughly 9 inches of snow away from setting a record of the most snow in one season…we might make it! More snow expected this week. We could experience blizzard-like conditions at times.

The National Weather Service says another strong winter storm is set to hit the region Tuesday morning into Wednesday night.  Much of the area could see 3 to 7 inches of snow along with very strong winds gusting to 55 mph.  For the latest on the roads call 511 or go to 511mn.org
