Increasing chances for snow Wednesday Evening to Thursday

Nothing like a Viking playoff loss and a healthy shot of rain to kick off January!

Hopefully we can turn around this bad luck with a snow system that is aiming for Southern MN but may creep up to toss a few inches on the metro. 

So will we get that northern shift or watch it pass below the metro?

Thread for a quiet period

Thanks to everyone who joined the discussion leading up to the last storm. It’s been a fun winter of overachieving systems and I have enjoyed reading your commentary.

It looks like nothing is on tap over the next week or so, but I wanted to have a new thread up for anyone to discuss any potential upcoming systems. 

I will start a new thread once we see a storm worth discussing!

A storm to kick off 2023 - but will it be rain or snow?

NWS says with 99% confidence that a storm will bring significant moisture early next week. However, there will be the classic “rain/snow” line that could spell wildly different results depending on where that axis lands. 

Will everyone north of Iowa see snow? Or will the metro receive liquid precipitation? 

Time to prognosticate!

More Snow Before Warmth?

Before the bitter siege ends, there may be one more shot at measurable snow on Christmas night before the weather pattern warms and perhaps yields ... wait for it ... liquid.
