Record breaking snowfall for Minneapolis-St.Paul Airport

Posted: Updated:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - It wasn't a rare snowfall by Minnesota standards, but it still set a record.

The National Weather Service says 6 inches of snow fell Saturday at Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, which is the most ever recorded there for Feb. 24.

The previous snowfall record for that date was 4.8 inches in 2007.

The Saturday snow prompted St. Paul and Minneapolis to declare second snow emergencies, following their first such declarations Friday when the metro was blasted with an earlier round of snow.
