It looks like there may be one more snow in the works for next week. However, local forecasters are not getting too specific with possibilities at this point. We're beginning another recap on this possible snow event. KSTP suggests that "accumulating snow is not out of the question," whereas KARE notes that, "it's looking like mostly rain at this point."
The predictions for the week's warm up are now complete. A quick glance reveals that the Strib's predictions stand out for two reasons: 1) the forecast temperatures often rose and fell considerably in successive days, and 2) in two instances, forecast highs for four days in advance were 10 and 13 degrees above the actual temperatures recorded. The remaining forecasts, without benefit of number crunching, appear to be fairly solid and closely batched together.
Seems to us that for any future analysis of temperatures we should simply go with a 3-day out or 4-day forecast. In general, it seems that all outlets are bunched together inside of three days and are typically close to the mark with the increasing model agreement.
