The tri-states was in no threat of recieving snowfall this weekend but mother nature had her eyes set on the Upper Midwest. Residents in Northwest Iowa woke up to several inches of the white stuff.
The storm then set its eyes on Minnesota with snowfall rates approaching an inch per hour in spots.
For the Twin cities the 6 inches officially recorded at the airport was the highest total ever recorded on Nov. 13th, besting the old 1997 record of 4″. On Average, Minneapolis has their first 1″ snow accumulation on Nov. 15th.
As of 1:40PM, here are the latest totals from the Minneapolis NWS.
