Could Minnesota see a repeat of 2019’s snowiest February on record?
This weekend’s snowstorm made a valiant effort to keep pace with last year. An average of 9 inches of fluffy, light snow fell overnight Saturday into Sunday morning in the region, blanketing the landscape in white. Informal reports put Redwood Falls’ total at about 11 inches.
KEYC News Now meteorologist Mark Tarello ran down the totals on social media Sunday, with the most impressive snow accumulations in Lake Crystal. The town saw about 15.5 inches of snow, while further south, St. James totaled 12.5 inches. Mankato received about 8.5 inches of snow, while points east and north averaged about 10 inches.
More snow is in the forecast, but weather pros aren’t estimating any possible accumulations just yet. The National Weather Services says Wednesday carries a 30 percent chance of snow and blustery southwest winds. Thursday, temps will plummet, but the sun will shine through Friday.
The weekend could be snowy, with snow chances in the forecast for Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday.
