Metro snow totals range from 4-11 inches

Snowfall totals from the Thursday-Friday snowstorm ranged from 4-11 inches in the metro area.

Dayton and Rogers in northwest Hennepin County reported some of the highest totals, at 11 inches.

Blaine, Lakeville and Maple Plain all reported totals in the 9-inch range. Most area communities reported at least 5 inches of snow, with many recording snow totals in the 6-8 inch range.

Heavy wind gust added to the storm’s ferocity, with gusts measured to over 50 mph by the National Weather Service. Sustained winds of 20-30 mph were reported throughout the region over the evening of Thursday.

The NWS cancelled the winter storm warning at 9 a.m. Friday, but issued a winter weather advisory through 3 p m. Friday. The blowing snow continues but conditions will improve.

The combination of blowing and drifting snow will make for difficult travel across much of Minnesota and west central Wisconsin through Friday afternoon. Winds are from the west-northwest 20 to 30 mph with some gusts to 35 mph. Wind chill readings will also hold near zero.

A winter weather advisory for blowing snow means that visibilities will be limited due to strong winds blowing snow around. Use caution when traveling…especially in open areas.
