West St. Paul declared a snow emergency on Saturday.
The Minnesota State Patrol logged 60 crashes statewide overnight (from about 9 p.m. Saturday to about 7 a.m. Sunday). Seven of those crashes involved injuries, but none were serious or fatal. The state patrol also registered 70 vehicles that spun out or went off road due to the snowfall.
Most local areas received between two and five inches of snow, with the National Weather Service’s Chanhassen office reporting 3.2 inches.
Skies were clearing in many areas Sunday morning with a possible high of 20 degrees. More snow is not expected until at least next weekend, according to the National Weather Service.
Temperatures are expected to drop through Wednesday, which has a forecast high of 17 degrees, and then warm up toward the weekend with a possible Friday high of 31 degrees.

Here’s an early analysis of observed snowfall over the past 24 hours. Generally speaking, most areas got 2″-5″ of snow, with many reports coming in clustered around 3 and 4 inches. Looks like we’re waiting until next weekend before seeing precip chances again. #mnwx #wiwx pic.twitter.com/2nrLk05g94
