A strong winter storm struck central and southern Minnesota, along with areas near Lake Superior, during the overnight and early morning hours on November 26th and 27th. This well-advertised storm produced widespread snowfall totals of six to nine inches, along with wind gusts in excess of 35 mph. The University of Minnesota preemptively closed for Wednesday the 27th, and many schools and business opted to take the day off as well.

The snow hit quickly Tuesday evening, as a strengthening low pressure system moved from the panhandle region of Oklahoma and Texas, up towards Iowa and Wisconsin. Heavy snow was reported at many central and southern Minnesota airport stations late Tuesday evening, with the bulk of the accumulating snow occurring between 8 PM and 6 AM. Moderate snow continued into the afternoon in northeastern Minnesota.

The largest snowfall totals included 9.2 at the Twin Cities International Airport, 8.5 at Kimball in Stearns County, and 8.1 inches at the National Weather Service office in Chanhassen.

Following is a summary of snowfall totals by county in the coverage region of the Twin Cities/Chanhassen office of the National Weather Service.
