NEW ULM — Snow fell again Tuesday, but without the strong winds from last week’s blizzard.

The snow began to fall in the late morning and continued through the afternoon and into the evening. The National Weather Service had Brown County in a Winter Weather Advisory until 3 a.m. Wednesday and snow was expected to accumulate between two and five inches.

Road conditions were slippery, but travel was easier than last week. Highway 14 from Courtland to Sanborn was only partially covered by snow and no major vehicle accidents were reported at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

With low winds, snow was less likely to drift and some people took advantage of the weather. For several area kids, Tuesday was their first chance to go sledding. South German Park was filled with families in the afternoon breaking in the saucers and toboggans.
