Rochester receives record snow – more on the way

Keep the shovels and snowblowers handy – more snow is headed this way. Rochester area residents were hit by a downburst of snow yesterday with totals of 2 – 4 inches across southeast Minnesota. The official Rochester total was 3.7 inches – a record for February 15. The previous record was 3.1 inches, set in 1967. That much or more could fall by the time the next storm winds down tomorrow. Forecasters are predicting 2 – 4 inches by noon tomorrow. If so, that would be another record for Rochester. Warmer weather is expected most of the new week with highs expected in the mid 30’s through Thursday.

Weather elsewhere:

BOSTON (AP) — Most of the winter storm warnings in New England are coming down, though the one for northeast Maine remains in effect this morning. Forecasters still say high winds could create blizzard-like conditions at times but the storm itself is moving out to sea.

Some 13,000 people in the Cape Cod area are without power amid wind gusts of 50 mph.

The weekend snowstorm comes on the heels of another storm that brought snow and ice to the East Coast, caused at least 25 deaths and left hundreds of thousands without power.
TOKYO (AP) — The second heavy snowfall this month has hit eastern Japan, killing more than 10 people and injuring hundreds, while paralyzing traffic and causing power outages.

Japan’s weather agency said Sunday that the low pressure system was traveling north, dumping more snow to the area after passing the Tokyo region. Media reports say as many as 12 people have died and 1,500 have been injured nationwide since Friday in snow-related accidents.
A shopping arcade roof collapsed in a Tokyo suburb, and two trains collided on slick tracks in nearby Kawasaki. Nearly 20,000 homes lost electricity.
