Shovels are back hitting the sidewalks after parts of central Minnesota received 6 to 9 inches of snow.
A narrow band in northern Minnesota got 7 to 14 inches of snow Sunday. Askov received 17 inches and Hinckley got 9 inches.
In St. Cloud, city officials declared its first snow emergency of the season after receiving 7 inches. Little Falls recorded 9 inches, and Litchfield saw 7.5 inches.
"There was a swath basically across central Minnesota -- the southern edge of which almost made it to the northern suburbs of the metro area," said Rich Naistat, a forecaster with the Weather Service in Chanhassen.
There was a chance of more snow this week, but nothing significant, Naistat said.
