I'm not sure I like this Baker's attitude.....

 

Heading into the start of next week, the upper flow is forecast to
become more zonal. This would open the doorway for another
weather system to develop and slide through the mid-latitudes
Monday night into Tuesday morning. This is also the first look at
possible frost development across a decent amount of land in the
central Illinois area, as lows Tuesday and Wednesday mornings drop
into the mid 30s Tuesday and low to mid 30s Wednesday. With
temperatures falling towards the freezing mark, and precipitation
chances Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, we`ll have to keep an eye
out for possible pesky white dendrites falling from the sky...but
for now we will think positive

 

LONG TERM...Baker

Perfect October storm. I'll take a continued step down to colder, a few "When the gales of November came slashin'
When afternoon came it was freezing rain
In the face of a hurricane west wind" November storms....and then a real snowy December. The early winter shots seem great, but have really screwed this forum in recent seasons around holiday time.

Looks like Detroit might be on track for a top 5 warmest October on record, and possibly the warmest October it's seen in nearly 100 years. Current departure is 60.1*F, and it would need to stay above 59.5*F to make the top 5. 

Even down here, we're looking at a top 10 warmest October on record.

Today marks the 30th anniversary of the standard bearer against which all other winter storms in Minnesota are compared against. The 1991 Halloween Blizzard produced 28.4” of snow in Minneapolis and over 36” in Duluth. I’m sure @Brian Dhas some good memories of this one.

That was a great read.  I remember that one, have family in southwest IA (near Shenendoah) that were in on that devastating ice storm.  Definitely one for the ages from MSP to Duluth.  It's pretty crazy how "the perfect storm" out east happened at the same time.

Hard to find much on the midwest Halloween '91 storm, as most of the attention was on the one out east at the same time.

Here's about all I can find, but you can see satellite loops, regional radar, and surface maps from Oct 30/ Oct 31/ Nov 1.  

34:25 min mark for Oct 30th

49:20 min mark for Oct 31st

1:07:10 hour/min mark for Nov 1st- the peak of the Midwest blizzard.

I haven't looked at the maps in detail from back then, but I wonder if something of the magnitude of the Halloween blizzard would've happened had it not been for the perfect storm out east.  It's possible that it had some influence on the track/speed of the blizzard.
