So far, Ellendale, which is near Albert Lea, got more than 8 inches of snow. Overnight into Friday morning, highways in southwestern Minnesota were closed due to low visibility from blowing snow.

Cities in the Twin Cities metro saw about 2 to 5 inches of snow. Accumulation was on the low end due to melting from city warmth, seen with the slush on the roads.
