Sorry for getting this up late, I am still trying to get the hang of when to begin a new thread.
I will probably start up a new “in between” thread after a storm concludes just so there is a new place to start looking ahead.
That said, we have a few chances for snow in the coming days, and the level of snow I am currently seeing in St Paul made me think I should have started a thread a couple days back!
Thanks for the new thread. It looks to be a busy 'snow potential' weekend, and it will be fun to see what the snow totals are around the state. That's all I'm saying at this point because NWS keeps waffling back and forth with the totals. Oh, and I like hearing the crunch of tires on snow out there on the street outside my window right now. Snow, snow, snow! Let it snow.ReplyDelete
Well, from the CoCoRaHS network, just a couple of spots in Hennepin county got an inch of snow from last night's snow dropper; the other reports were way under an inch. Let's see what tonight brings. And tomorrow night. All's quiet on this new thread.ReplyDelete
Looks pretty consistent in the models that this will be a few basic, simple clippers coming through. Clippers can overproduce with this cold air in place and, without a sharp gradient, the "edges" of the clippers can give us more than a few inches for each one - or at least give us the top of the predictions. Between now and Monday, that would mean 4-5 inches for us in addition to last night. I am loving the continuous snow cover in MSP this year. Not too many places can say that like we can! Let's keep that and bring it!ReplyDelete
And we know a monster storm can't be too far away. Bring that!
Clipper outperform dance is ongoing.
Monster storm dance will commence after I rest and recover from the clipper dances.
10.2/10.6 inches monthly snow totals at MSP and Chanhassen. A little bit above normal, so all these little snowfalls that come one after the other are helping out in the precip department. Still waiting for a nice big old-fashioned storm around the metro, though. Stay warm this week everyone..........ReplyDelete
My 3 day accumulation(1” Fri/2” Sat/1.5” Sun), so 4.5” 3 clipper total! All in all not bad, because any snow is good snow but as you can see the fickleness of these storms. Saturday turned out to be the most aggressive of the bunch when all along it was talked about Sunday being the most impactful of the bunch and Sunday’s clipper really fizzled from the several inches it was advertising. I echo @WeatherGeek’s sentiments we need an old fashioned big snowstorm, one of those 8-12+ storms, won’t be this week….in fact it will be hard pressed to shake out a flurry this week, but next week there appears to have storminess potential! Time will tell.ReplyDelete
Looking at the long range models I don't see anything for at least 10+ daysReplyDelete
BORING, is the word of choice moving forward or really since the last clipper of 1/23. Perhaps a new thread just to predict when MSP sees accumulation again. Could be awhile, we are at 8 days and counting.....ReplyDelete
During this current snow drought, perhaps we should start a contest to see when the MSP Airport (because this is the official recording site) will record another 2 or more inches of snow. My prediction is a very dry February (unfortunately). My guess as to when the next 2 inches or more of snow will fall at the MSP Airport is February 20. I hope I am wrong! What say you?ReplyDelete
I've been using the woman screaming at cat meme app to put silly weather comments on my FB wall...... this lull is sooooooo borrrrrrring. Lucky are those getting blasted with snow. Hmmm, re the next chance for two inches at MSP: I'll go for the unlucky number of February 13.ReplyDelete
I echo the sentiment of the rest of you. My guess as to the next 2 or more inches of snow at MSP is February 17.ReplyDelete
I think it stays dry, so I’ll go even later with Feb 28 for next 2” at the airport. Prove me wrong, please!ReplyDelete
Well I have to agree - this is pretty boring. But Minnesota weather can change quickly. This quickly will just take a bit. Pattern changes can take a bit. We almost got one to happen but things went south - literally.ReplyDelete
I say we get our next 2 inch snowfall on Feb 12-13. One inch on Feb 12 and one inch on Feb 13. Let’s go with that.
If I am right……..
I went for 2/13, too.. oh how I wish it even 'now' rather than later. What a little snow drought we've got going on. Dance, PWL, dance.Delete
It looks like February is going to be very dry? My guess is March 3 for the next 2-inch snowfall at MSP. Please prove me wrong!ReplyDelete
Still BORING!! But a sneaky surprise snow might be in the cards today. Nobody has February 10th on their snow 2" bingo card but most models have anywhere from 1-3" today into tomorrow.ReplyDelete
BORING CONTINUES...Still waiting for at least 2 inches of snow to fall at MSP. Those who guessed end of February/early March might be right. The February forecast continues to look very dry, complete opposite of February 2019!ReplyDelete
Yeah, this is tough, all this water and flash freezing.... what a 'winter'.......Delete
Looks like possibly a storm next week that might impact SE Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin but that's about it.ReplyDelete
I’m not saying I was spot on, but I did say an inch on February 12 and an inch and February 13. I don’t know the exact measurement at MSP for yesterday, February 12, but pretty darn close I bet. In the forecast calls for about an inch today.ReplyDelete
Good try PWL! MSP recorded .6, .1 and .4 inches on Feb. 10-12, respectively. Also, to clarify, the 2 inches contest is for the same system, not multiple systems. Unfortunately the snow drought continues.Delete
Yeah, I went for today's date.... no two inches is coming today, either, but I'll take what we can get as I sit looking at the cloudy sky this afternoon. Thanks for the info on NWS numbers, Tim.Delete
Dang. I did the wrong dance - the "Snow 1 inch on Feb. 12 and 1 inch on Feb. 13" dance. Darn it.ReplyDelete
Hey, that is totally okay!!!! I appreciate the dancing. All snow is welcome no matter how small the amounts. :+) Hoping for at least an inch before this day ends.Delete
1.1 inches of snow yesterday at MSP; .7 Chanhassen.ReplyDelete
One precip station in Richfield (I think they're near the crosstown) got 2.5 inches! Wooo hoooooo. I always check totals on this network for anyone interested. Here's the link: https://www.cocorahs.org/ViewData/ListDailyPrecipReports.aspxReplyDelete
I measured 1.5 inches on my deck in Plymouth.ReplyDelete
Nice!! Looks like our next tiny chance of precip in the metro is Friday per NOAA; I hope the odds increase.Delete
Just noticed my point forecast (Wx Underground) is calling for 4-8” next Mon-Tuesday.ReplyDelete
It’s SOMETHING to monitor that isn’t 200 miles south! I’ll take it.
I'm starting to hear more and more rumblings about a bonafide legit snowstorm for the metro area early next week. Is it real or is it just a flash in the dark? Here's hoping for the real deal!ReplyDelete
Oh, yeah, even Novak posted that something is brewing for early next week...... I sure hope it all stays in place for the metro area. Yay!ReplyDelete
Dave it is time!!ReplyDelete
New thread for sure for early next week. Could be a snowy couple of days!!
