First Snowstorm of 2017

January 25, 2017 0 Comments

Here’s a sampling of snow totals from across the area from 1/24/2017 to 1/25/2017. A convective (thunder) band of snow delivered a swath of heavier snow from Cerro Gordo County through Worth, Mitchell, Mower and southern Olmsted Counties. Snow totals tapered off as you went north of Dodge Center and Rochester with only 1 to 3 inches of snow across the south metro of the Twin Cities.

Another interesting feature that shows up on the maps is the lower snow totals along the Mississippi River Valley from Wabasha southward to La Crosse. The lower elevation leads to a bit milder temperatures and overall lower snow totals. At the La Crosse Arp (airport) there was just 2.9″ of snow while up on the bluff top (about 600 feet above the airport) at the La Crosse NWS (National Weather Service) there was 7.8″ of snow!
