MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Some residents north and west of the Twin Cities metro got an early taste of winter on Sunday with at least measurable snowfall.
The snow was seen briefly coming down in the metro on Monday but it didn’t stick around long.
Sartell was one of the areas that saw some measurable snow Sunday, but a lot of it melted once it hit the pavement so other than a few slushy spots, the roads were fine. At least one child, 8-year-old Patrick Immelman, took advantage of the snowfall. He scooped up enough to make a four foot tall snowman with a Jack O’ Lantern head.
And, he was very excited when we stopped to take a look. Areas in northern Minnesota could see more snow later this week, and it’s expected to be chilly with highs in the low to mid-40s for most of the week. It’s making Minnesotans wonder if we’re skipping fall and just going straight to winter.
The community of Askov in Pine County got the most with 5 inches. A little more than two inches of snow is on the ground in Pine City. Lesser amounts of snow was recorded at Barnum, Bruno and Hayward, Wis.
