Crosby, MN (Crow Wing County)  3.3"
3 NE of Nisswa, MN (Crow Wing County)  2.2"
1 NNW of Motley, MN (Cass County)  2.0"
4 SSW of Shephard, MN (Crow Wing County)  1.5"

Little change is needed to the forecast.  Snow is just beginning to fall in Duluth at 12:11 PM.

Latest model guidance shows the bulk of the snow coming before 9 PM This Evening in the Twin Ports with lingering light snow and flurries probably continuing at times through the Overnight hours.  Should end up with about 4" of snow in Duluth by This Evening with a lower chance for up to 5".

Use caution if you will be traveling This Afternoon or Tonight as road conditions will deteriorate as the snow falls.  Visibility could drop to a half mile or less at times This Afternoon as heavier bands of snow move through.

Here's my total snowfall accumulation map through Tonight.
