Thursday's rain and snow totals from around Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) -

A pretty vigorous storm system rolled through the state Thursday leading to a very wet day across much of the area. Rain and eventually snow fell in many parts of the state from Bemidji and Duluth southward all the way to the I-90 corridor.

In most cases, it wasn't a lot, but areas of central Minnesota and western Wisconsin ended up with a decent amount of late March rain and of course a band of 2 to as much as 11 inches of snow.

The image below is a look at some of the snow totals from across the area…

Much of the metro didn't end up with much ranging from just a few flakes, to a couple inches in the far northeast metro.

But a band of heavy snow set up to the north and west of the metro with a solid 2 to 5 inches from east central South Dakota through the Willmar and Alexandria areas up through Brainerd and Lake Mille Lacs.

Then the band sat and intensified near the shores of Lake Superior with a small swath of 6 to 12 inches from Wright to Cloquet and Carlton, and then into the Superior, Wisconsin area. Much of the Iron Range ended up with a solid 6 to 10 inches as well.

But a lot of us saw the rain much of the day which lead to a wet morning commute and a pretty dreary day. Liquid totals ranged from around a tenth of an inch up to a half inch in some spots. A list of a few of the liquid precipitation totals can be found below followed by a map that shows overall radar estimated liquid totals from across the area.
