First Real Snow of the Season?
What's more exiting: the Vikings win in Buffalo or this week's expected snow? There's probably more anticipation over the snow. What are your thoughts on what this suddenly cold/maybe snowy week will bring?
Bring it! Let's get a solid snow cover to start the year and then more will just pile on. Bring it!!!ReplyDelete
So happy to see the blog alive and well! I'm with PWL in bring it. Can we get 5" this week? Will the saying of 'don't predict rain in a drought' hold true? Most forecasters/Novak predicted 2-5" over the next couple of days with their charts/graphs. For me, snow is far more exciting than those Vikes. :+) Thanks again for the blog, Bill.ReplyDelete
I too am glad to see the blog fire up for the new (hopefully exciting) season! That Vikes game was amazing, especially the fourth quarter and OT. My two favorite teams are 8-0 (Eagles) and 8-1 (Vikes)! Now to the weather...it's snowing steadily here in Plymouth. It looks like a snow globe. I am hoping the more intense forcing the NWS is predicting today occurs farther north in the Twin Cities. I am seeing a general 3-4 inches predicted for this week from various outlets. Time will tell. Be careful driving/walking outside...and enjoy the SNOW!!!ReplyDelete
I had emailed Dave a couple weeks back asking him to start the 2022-2023 snow season but I see Bill posted? Either way, glad to have it back! As PWL says, Bring It! Snow globe going here in ShoreviewReplyDelete
My thoughts are why no winter weather advisory for the metro with most forecasters going over 3+” and it’s the first snowfall of the season, more headlines the better for travel impacts. Thank you for the thread Bill, I see your still one of us even though your far away!ReplyDelete
Big Daddy: you got your wish; now there is a WWA for the metro. Check it out on NOAA. :+)ReplyDelete
Yes I see that @WeatherGeek but I think it was too late and after the fact, should have went out last night so more people were aware and prepared(ie, leave more time to get to their destination). I believe sometimes the NWS gets too cute with their headlines and hold out too long, just to be completely accurate, I’m on the mindset if it’s close and on the fence about it then pull the trigger rather be safe then sorry, then being right all the time. It’s weather which isn’t a perfect science so it’s not always going to be 100% accurate, people should know and understand that living in Minnesota.Delete
I agree with you 100%.Delete
Hi All -ReplyDelete
I was indeed planning to keep updating the site this season - I admit though I was totally caught off guard by this snow today and was not yet believing it was time for winter weather!
So thank you Bill for stepping in and getting a thread posted!
Here is to a snowy winter!
No problem, Dave. (And this is actually Bill - for some reason I can't get it to reflect my name.)Delete
Phew, I just finished raking the leaves last night. Today was a nice surprise!ReplyDelete
Same here! Thankfully decided to complete the last yard work yesterday.Delete
The system that keeps on giving. It was a very snowy school drop-off this morning in Minneapolis. I don’t recall it looking this wintery in mid-november for at least a few years now, and looks to be a good chill following up this days-long, light-but-consistent system. I wonder how much will be left on the ground by thanksgiving.ReplyDelete
I was just coming on here to comment on the duration of this snow! Not that I mind, the trees are pretty.Delete
Yah, no complaints here! This feels like Thanksgivings of the past. But, as Dave mentions, it may all be gone by next weekend. It's still early in the season!ReplyDelete
What am I thankful for? Whenever the forecasters say they have an eye on something. That eye on something is being talked about for the middle of this coming week and maybe next weekend.ReplyDelete
Bring that eye! "Eye" love it! Bring it!
Yes. 1-3" Tuesday, perhaps? Let's hope for the high end (and more, don't we wish)........ReplyDelete
Tuesday is looking like a solid snow day. How much? Early read looks to be a respectable 4-8” as a high end band somewhere within the CWA. I wouldn’t be surprised if a winter storm watch is hoisted at some point today within the CWA for TuesdayReplyDelete
Yah, getting excited for Tuesday. @Bill or @Dave, can you start a new thread for this upcoming event?ReplyDelete
I'm getting excited; but NOAA keeps waffling. Last night for the Twin Cities metro it was back to 1-3". Now this morning I see it's up to 3-7". Yes, I wish we had a new thread!ReplyDelete
Started a new thread (Bill, still Anonymous for some reason).ReplyDelete
