Episode Narrative The seventh snow storm in less than two months produced a narrow band of six inches or more across portions of south central and east central Minnesota on Monday, December 20th. A broad area of mainly light snow developed across southwestern Minnesota the morning of December 20th, and expanded northeast across the region by the afternoon. There were a few bands of heavy snow that fell during the afternoon hours across south central and east central Minnesota, where snowfall rates increased to 1 inch or more per hour. The snow quickly became light during the evening, before tapering off to mainly flurries by midnight. Some light freezing precipitation developed prior to the main snow bands in the morning, and again during the evening once the system moved off to the north and northeast.
Event Narrative Several reports of 5 to 7 inches of snow fell across the county in less than 12 hours.
