Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) -The snow that moved into southeast Minnesota Thursday has moved into Wisconsin and it looks like it will be dry for the next week.

The heaviest snowfall totals reported to the National Weather Service are coming from northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin, ranging from 3 - 6 inches. Totals in the Rochester area are 1- 2 inches. The city’s official total at the airport was measured at 1.3 inches.

Most roads in southeast Minnesota were reported partially or completed snow-covered as of 6:00 AM and MNDOT is urging motorists to use caution.

Although no more snow is expected for several days, it will remain cold with below normal temperatures.  

Highs will only be in the teens Friday and Saturday, which means Rochester will have a frigid Polar Plunge and SocialICE. It appears temps will approach 30 degrees on Wednesday.

Rochester hasn’t been above the freezing mark since January 27th.
