Heavy Snow Axis Stalls over MSP Metro. It's snowing a little harder (for longer) and that may result in snowfall totals closer to 8", even 10" by the time the deformation zone swings east of the the Twin Cities after 10 PM or so. Snow totals will be in the 5-10" range for the downtowns and most suburbs, with an outside shot at a foot. 7:38 PM Doppler radar mosaic: NOAA and AerisWeather.


Warnings. Most of the metro area is still under a Winter Storm Warning, with Blizzard Warnings posted southwest of a line from Mankato to New Ulm and Granite Falls, where white-out conditions are still being reported. I would stay off the roads tonight, if at all possible.


Complicating Factor. Sustained winds are 20-30 mph in the Twin Cities, just below blizzard criteria, but we are seeing (sustained) winds over 35 mph across much of south central and southwestern Minnesota, resulting in near-zero visibiliity and treacherous to impassable driving conditions.
