Minnesota Winter Weather 29 Feb 12

Weather conditions varied across the state this (WED) morning following a day of mixed precipitation across Minnesota. The National Weather Service says that the ongoing snowfall was the cause for the continuation of its winter storm warning across the mid-section of Minnesota through tonight. Meanwhile, a wintry mix of snow, sleet and rain rules the weather picture in the lower half of the state. Southwestern Minnesota is under a wind advisory with 50-mile-an-hour gusts possible as well. Areas of central and northern Minnesota received a foot or more of snow on Tuesday, while southern Minnesota received mostly rain. New Ulm received 1.64” of rain, and only about a half-inch of slushy snow on Tuesday, but snow was again falling as of this morning.
