Hubbard County region sees more than 6 inches of new snow
It sure feels like way more than 6+ inches on the shovel.
That's the National Weather Service's best guess for snow totals I the Park Rapids area, since the Hubbard County region doesn't have cooperating weather observers in the vicinity.
But the area was alive and noisy with the sound of plows Monday, as heavy Super Bowl snows slowed school buses and motorists alike.
"It looks like you're out of the woods for now," said NWS meteorologist Dan Riddle. "The skies cleared out overnight.
"This week you may see some flurries but that's about it. By the weekend some weak disturbances may pass through" bringing dustings of new snow. Snowfall totals as of Monday morning for other areas include 3.5 inches in Bemidji, 7.5 inches in Detroit Lakes, 5.5 inches at Itasca, 6 inches in Sebeka and 5.5 inches in Wadena.
