After just under an inch of snow was measured at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport late Friday, a more potent snowstorm is in the process of unleashing a fresh 8 to 12 inches through this evening.
Totals on the upper end of that range would mean Minneapolis has recorded half of the snow that fell last winter in just one day.
The city received only 22.3 inches of snow last winter, well under the 54.5 inches that typically falls.
Today's snowstorm is creating hazards for motorists throughout the Twin Cities with visibility poor and roads, including Interstates 35 and 94, snow-covered and treacherous.
