After a blizzard days before Christmas, winds have slowed enough where some snow can be measured, although do keep in mind that the snow was blowed around a lot and is still blowing around Thursday morning to an extend.
Parts of Rochester recorded near 3 inches, while RST Airport reported 1.3 inches. To the west, Owatonna recorded 6 inches as blizzard conditions roared ever louder there late Wednesday. More snow was reported in the Twin Cities, with many reports near 10 inches.
Northwestern Iowa received quite a bit of snow too. Algona and Crystal Lake west of Mason City both reported 3 inches.
