    October 2018 General Discussion

    Winter weather is here so I’m done lurking and back to posting. First snow in the new house. Hoping to have a PWS up in the next few weeks. Sticking to trees, deck, grass but will melt by the afternoon.

    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.

    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.

    It's still snowing in Minneapolis. Going on 48 hours of some sort of frozen precip.

    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.

    Thank you. Should have known to try that. I’ll upload from my computer later. Fresh powder to shred first.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.
