  1. -17 in the heat island this morning. Suburbs made it down into the -20s. I didn’t look at lows across the state. Regionally Red Wing made it down to -24 which was the coldest spot I found within 40 miles of the metro.
  2. Down to -13 here this morning. We’ll struggle to get above zero today.
  3. 1.3” from Clipper #3 for a 3 day total of 4.4”
  4. Yeah I was hoping to get into the main banding but can’t get too greedy. Depths are back up to 8-9” here, with a stout compact glacier on the bottom.
  5. Not expecting much outta wave #3 imby. Light snow has started.
  6. 2.3” in Minneapolis on 0.11” of precipitation for a ratio of over 20:1. 31” on the season now and snowdepth around 8”.
  7. Snow winding down. Looks like a hair over 2” of very powdery snow. Ratios had to be pushing 20:1 for this event.
  8. Can confirm. 1-2mi vis and parachutes for a couple hours now.
  9. Zero wind tonight leading to a much more beautiful snowfall then last night. Ratios are certainly better since it’s much colder and the dendrites aren’t getting shattered.
  10. Clipper #2 underway here. 1-2” tonight and 1-3” tomorrow night.
  11. Same story here, blew through quick and with wind. I’d guess half an inch of actual accumulation but in some places the sidewalk is bare and other spots have 3”
  12. Clipper #1 started about 10min ago locally. Dust on crust already.
  13. Return flow on the backside of the high kept us from really dropping off last night. Only got down to -8. Clipper train starts this evening.
  14. -10 in Minneapolis last night. Torched to 3 above this afternoon.
  15. Yep im a Geologist/Environmental Scientist for a large engineering and testing firm in the cities. Outside collecting and analyzing samples at job sites most days. I travel all over the state. I’m pleasantly surprised how well I’ve acclimated to negative temperatures. Still Brrrrr. Clipper train here over the weekend. First two look like dust but the third might be more impactful.
  16. Bottomed out at -1 this morning. Not much of a recovery today with a high of 4 above, and a struggle to make above zero tomorrow!
  17. Down to 19 now with CAA in full swing. We won’t make it out of the low single digits tomorrow or Thursday.
  18. Overachieved to a high of 43 today and lost about 2” of snow depth. The cold front just barreled through and we’ve dropped 8 degrees the past hour to 35.
  19. Weirdly enough same here. 28.5” on the season and we average 56”
  20. 6pm update 3.7” at the Airport 4.6” at the NWS office Final total might add another tenth or so but this should about wrap it up. Very pleased with how this event turned out imby. Snow depth back up to 7” with 28.5” season to date.
  21. Minneapolis is ending up on the winning side of the sharp eastern cutoff. 2.6” as of noon which was the upper forecasted amount. The heaviest snow of the event moved in around noon and is just wrapping up now so I think 4-5” will be around where we end up.
  22. Snow started shortly after 5 this morning. Well ahead of the 8-9am start time pegged by the nws.
