Live weather updates

The official Twin Cities snowfall is measured at MSP Airport for the National Weather Service every six hours. The reading taken at 1 p.m. on Sunday pushed the storm total up to 13.2 inches. Continuing snowfall will certainly push the number up past the record April storm of 13.6 inches set on April 14, 1983.
We already have set a record for the snowiest month of April in the Twin Cities. The snowfall amount is in excess of 22 inches and still climbing.
The real bullseye of heavy snow was in southwestern Minnesota. Amounts of around 20 inches have been reported around Granite Falls, Marshall and Lake Wilson.
Almost lost in the shuffle is that the Twin Cities record for coldest high temperature for this date, 32 degrees, is being taken down to defeat. The “warmest” I have seen today has been just 28.
