    81 at MSP today, first of the season.
  2. April 2018 General Discussion

    Beautiful spring day. Remaining piles of snow melting fast. Today Lake Bda Maka Ska (formally Lake Calhoun) tied the record for latest ice out. I’m hopefully the ice will last until Tuesday so the record is set in May. There is still feet of ice on the lakes up north.
  3. Seasonal Snowfall totals?

    78.3” since July 1st. 26.1” in April.
  4. April 18th-19th Winter Storm

    Have had a few scattered flakes fall here today.
  5. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Snapped a few photos walking around the neighborhood this morning.
  6. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Woke up to brilliantly sunny skis and deep snow. There is a COOP report of 17.4” a few blocks north of my apartment so I’ll go with that. Estimate 10-12” depth. One of the most memorable storms of my life for the duration and time of year.
  7. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    It's still snowing in Minneapolis. Going on 48 hours of some sort of frozen precip.
  8. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    I think Halloween 1991 is the largest single storm but the April record belongs to 1983 until perhaps today. Yeah this is our biggest storm in quite awhile and we received 12.5” on 1/22. Pushing 80” this year.
  9. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Thank you. Should have known to try that. I’ll upload from my computer later. Fresh powder to shred first.
  10. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Epic mid April storm in the Twin Cities. Airport up to 12.9” as of 7am with light to occasionally moderate snow still falling and expected throughout the day. I believe we have officially set the April snowfall record for single storm and monthly total. It looks and feels like deep winter again, and I’m going skiing today which will be the latest in the season I’ve ever gone. I would love to post pictures and videos but cannot seem to find a way around the size limit?
  11. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    MSP reporting 10.1” as of 7pm. Need another 1.4” to tie the monthly snowfall record for April. Band of moderate snow currently and with passing snow showers tonight and tomorrow we should achieve that.
  12. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    MSP now closed thru 9pm due to Blizzard conditions.
  13. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Have had very heavy snowfall the past few hours, definitely in the 1-2”/hr range. Airport has been shutdown all afternoon and until at least 7pm. Going to estimate close to 10” here, we’ll see what is reported in about an hour.
  14. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Absolute rippage right now, this is incredible to witness walking around my neighborhood. Upgraded to a blizzard warning with very strong words from the NWS. Easily 6”+ with lots of drifting.
  15. April 12th-15th Winter Storm

    Heavy snow right now after the overnight lull. Probably have around 3” but the wind is very strong and blowing everything around so I’m just eyeballing. We should have on and off snow this morning with the death band coming through this afternoon bringing 1-2”/hr rates.
