What Happened To All The Snow That Was Supposed To Fall In Central Minnesota?
Waking up this morning I was surprised that we had maybe an inch of new snow on the driveway and on the road. What happened to the 2-5 inches we were told about? Well, the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities has an answer for that, and also a warning that there is potential for MORE snow on the way this weekend.
According to the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities, the roads and other hard surfaces were just too warm for the snow to stick and accumulate, and we have the sun to thank for that, even though it was cloudy yesterday.
- Surface temperatures are near or above freezing.
- There is a relatively strong solar angle in March versus the rest of the winter (yes, even through the clouds) during the daytime hours.
- Lighter snowfall rates.
So are they already sitting us up for an underwhelming storm system this weekend?
Here is what they had to say about this weekend's potential this morning.
St. Cloud and Central Minnesota fall in the range where it's the most likely that we will see 4 inches or more of snow.
Time will tell.
Be safe out there.
