Major snow in the US northern Corn Belt

What an incredibly snowy winter it has been for much of southern Minnesota...and today marks the beginning of the official winter! Another six inches of snow at Rochester yesterday gave that location nearly 38 inches so far this month, making it the most snowfall December ever and also their snow month ever recorded. That snow was part of a swatch of snow stretching from northwestern North Dakota (where nearly a foot of snow was recorded at Williston) southeast into northern parts of Illinois and northwestern Indiana (a lot of 2 to 4 inch amounts recorded in northern Illinois).

Of course, most everyone has some travel plans for later this week heading up to the Christmas holiday on Saturday, but be aware that it will be a rough go of it in a large part of the Midwest for later Thursday and into Friday. There are still some big model differences on the track of the storm, but my thoughts right now is that especially central and southern parts of the Midwest will see significant snow (at least four inches) in that period and some places may get close to a foot.
