  1. 8.3” fell today in Minneapolis. Heart of the metro was the bullseye on this one. Go figure I’m out exploring the Big Sur region with the family on what’s bound to be the biggest event this year imby.
  2. Up to 4” here from the multiple bouts of light snow the past several days.
  3. Steady light snow all day. Didn’t really add up to much though, it just kept the 2.5” from yesterday from melting.
  4. Good. Build that base up at Lutsen. long duration light snow event here, 2-2.5” otg but with marginally temps it’s taking heavier rates to lead to accumulation.
  5. 2” here today with 3-4” reports across northern metro. Certainly caught a lot of people off guard as the number of spin outs and crashes was substantial. I guess I could put this in the thread for the 11/15-16 event but since we have another 2-4” forecasted tomorrow night I’ll save that for there.
  6. Only 0.87” of rain materialized here. Far too little to even make a dent in the drought. Peaked at 68 this morning before the cold front came through, down to 46 and crashing now. We won’t get more then a degree or two above freezing for the next week. Lakes will be frozen soon enough!
  7. Looking pretty locked in for a significant rain event here this week before being blasted into winter. Hallelujah! Since September 1st Minneapolis has seen 0.75” of precipitation. Most small streams have been dry for months and I’ve never seen the lakes anywhere close to this low. Great to see a classic wound up Dakota special. Means winter is here.
  8. First flakes of the season in Minneapolis. Accumulating on grassy surfaces. Good to be back in the game.
  9. With 0.23” and nothing in the forecast this will be the driest September on record for MSP. June-September will be 4th driest on record and driest since 1936.
  10. Only 0.16” of rain yesterday. Since June 1st only 27% of average precipitation has accumulated.
  11. It was still 90F with a dew point of 75F in Minneapolis as of 9:50pm. Crazy stuff. 2nd summer in a row here with severe drought. Plants and some trees that aren’t getting supplemental water are showing signs of stress. MCS out in western Minnesota is giving me a little hope this evening.
  12. https://www.weather.gov/wrh/timeseries?site=KORD @Hoosier With the update it now shows to the tenth of a degree if you click on the line graph.
  13. While it is 90 degrees currently at MSP, dews have dropped well below forecast into the upper 40s. Feel nice out compared to 101/68 yesterday.
  14. MSP has been mentioning a flash drought developing in numerous AFDs over the past 10 days. We’ve fallen 0.70” below average year to date and over 2” below average for June.
  15. MSP now up to 101. Old record high was 98. https://twitter.com/NWSTwinCities/status/1538991985003941890?s=20&t=aKsREXcyLjlBXgGnN7n5FQ
  16. MSP tagged 100 on a 5min ob at 3:30pm. First triple digit temperature since 2018
  17. Low of 79 this morning with a steamy dew point of 70.
  18. Does the HRRR have a cold bias in summertime? The 23z run is showing temps in the upper 80s right now, while we sit at 97.
  19. Ouch. We are looking at a few thousand in repairs, but the previous owners didn’t disclose a known issue so we might be getting a new system paid for by them. Staying on topic, high of 97 here today.
  20. Horrible timing for our A/C to decide to start dying a slow death.
  21. My father was a pilot based out of ORD from 1987-2016. He texted me saying this is the longest meter he can remember ever seeing.
  22. Washout of a day, 0.56” of liquid and counting.
  23. May 2018 was a crazy month. Latest ice out ever on the metro lakes. The urban lakes didn’t go ice free until May 2nd/3rd followed by the earliest 100 degree reading on record in Minneapolis a few weeks later.
  24. Going up to Lutsen MN this upcoming weekend for some late April skiing. (We downhill ski into May most years in Northeast Minnesota) There is still a very solid snowpack up there. Looks like for the second year in a row my timing will be poor. Cold rain Saturday with a stiff east wind off Superior.
