Overview

Light to moderate snow spread into the area during the afternoon hours on Saturday, December 10th, and continued into the afternoon hours of the following day, Sunday, December 11th. An enhanced band of snowfall developed around the Interstate 90 corridor late Saturday evening, and gradually shifted northeast to Interstate 94 by early Sunday morning. Snowfall rates of up to 1 inch per hour were common in this band. The snow was light and fluffy, but winds were not that strong and this limited any significant blowing or drifting.
