Snow totals for the area on the rise, but way off the record


WILLMAR -- So far this season, 43.2 inches of snow has fallen in Willmar.

That's a far cry from the record-setting season snowfall of 89.8 inches in 2001-02. But it's just 4.5 inches shy of the season average and we've still got March -- the area's snowiest month -- to look forward to.

"This is probably one of the snowiest winters that we've had," said Jim Taggart with the National Weather Service in Chanhassen.
