While the potentially historic winter storm didn't produce the record snowfall totals that had been forecasted, the snow that accumulated across Minnesota is still quite impressive.

The three-day storm caused hundreds of crashes and spinouts, closed roads, blizzard conditions, school closings, snow emergencies, Ash Wednesday service cancelations, and more.

The gold medal from this storm goes to Benoit, Wisconsin -- recording a total of 26 inches of snow since Tuesday.

Things in our weather world seem to be pretty quiet for the rest of the week, with ample sunshine in the forecast for the weekend, with highs in the mid-twenties on Saturday, and the mid-thirties on Sunday.

The next chance for significant precipitation comes Sunday night into Monday, when snow and freezing rain looks likely.

Things should also start warming up in a spring-like fashion as we prepare to turn the page to March. The average high for March in Owatonna jumps from February's 28, to a balmy 40. (In April the average soars to 57.) We also 'spring forward' on Sunday, March 12th, which instantly makes things feel a whole lot more like spring.
