Winter Storm Impacts Twin Cities – 12/21/2022

Moderate to heavy snow fell across the Twin Cities throughout the day, leading to very slick conditions by the evening timeframe as air temperatures hovered around 0F. The very light nature of the snow caused reduced visibility as the snow was already beginning to blow around. The following clips were from around the Apple Valley, Minnesota area, a southern Twin City suburb.
