March 06, 2018 02:38 PM

The snow is starting to taper off in the Twin Cities.

KSTP's Ken Barlow said Tuesday morning could still bring occasional light snowfall, with another half-inch or inch of accumulation possible. Then the storm will give way to windy and chilly conditions with a high of 32 degrees.


The snowfall totals from Monday's winter storm varied, according to the National Weather Service.

Only around 4.4 inches of snow were reported over the past 24 hours at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport. But 8.5 inches were reported in Prior Lake, and parts of Bloomington reported around 7 inches.

A total of 6.1 inches were reported in Chanhassen and Edina checked in with around 5.5 inches. To the north, Brooklyn Center checked in with only around 3.3 inches of snow and Elk River was reporting 5.4.

Willmar recorded around 8.6 inches, St. Cloud around 9.2 inches and Brainerd around 10.3 inches. Further south, parts of Rochester were reporting anywhere from 6 to 7.3 inches.

Barlow's forecast calls for gradual clearing overnight Tuesday with a low of 14 degrees. That is expected to be followed by partly-to-mostly sunny conditions with a high of 28 on Wednesday and a low of 15.

The same conditions are expected Thursday with a high of 30 and a low of 14. 

The next sign of snow in Barlow's forecast comes late Saturday when he said a little light snow is possible.
