    Winter Storm? Jan 18-19th, 2019

    Actually getting some very light snow in Minneapolis, but no accumulation. Friend in the south metro said close to an inch.

    Yep the HRRR has been awful for the metro today. Haven’t seen more then a stray flake or two so far and I work outside. Was never really expecting anything from this system.

    3km Nam is giving me hope to see some flakes today. I guess MN gain is IL pain.

    Fall/Winter 2018-19 Complaint/Banter Thread

    I think you mean April 2018 which was incredible and the snowiest April ever at MSP. Last year was pretty good in my opinion, I believe we finished with over 70” However it has been really bad here this winter, especially watching the rest of the sub-forum cash in lately. Outside the sloppy 2” which transitioned into 0.75” of rain in late December, MSP hasn’t recorded an inch of snow since early December. Only a Trace has been recorded this month. 0.6” is the low bar and honestly the futility record feels in play.

    Selfishly for mby let’s go #18. Realistically though I’d be feeling really good if I were in northern Ohio. Looks like a really nice hit.

    January 21-24 Winter Storm Potential

    Yet another storm that will miss MSP to the south. Really fun to track all these systems but would be better if I had some skin in the game.

    Looks like another whiff to the south. Going to have some deep ground frost with no snow insolating things before the deep freeze.

    It was 32.2F when I left for work at 6am this morning. I got home a few minutes ago and we are down to 18.8F with a howling wind. Oh and I work outside.

    Today had the lowest daily record high in Minneapolis at 41. Needless to say we shattered this with a high of 46 today. Although we are far below average on snow season to date, and received over an inch of rainfall last week, the low sun angle is helping some snow hang around. Here’s the backyard a few hours ago.

    Received some backend snow, maybe 0.5” after an all day rainer Thursday. It did help freshen/brighten up the dilapidated snowpack. Soooo....hopped in the car drove 5 hours north and find myself in Lutsen Minnesota which received 24” from the storm and 28” last 7 days. Winter wonderland to say the least.

    2.5” of snow which transistioned to rain at some point overnight. Misting and a slushy hell outside.

    I wish I had a good camera to setup for a time lapse imby tonight. 2-4” snow followed by 0.50” of rain and if I’m lucky 1-2” of snow to end it all. Yuck. Going to establish some good snowpack north of here however.

    Merry Christmas everyone! Looking like I’ll be in a bad position for the storm later this week, barring a moderate shift south. A few inches on the front end will be followed by rain and a dry slot with crashing temperatures and backend snow showers. Still better then most of the board I suppose, but only a county or two away from the 10”+ totals.

    Yeah it's getting interesting for my area right after Christmas. Could be in line for some impressive snows and winds, or slush and rain. Either way fun to have something imby to track.
