The snow came quickly Sunday afternoon, covering our brown ground white for once. A good ol' fashion Alberta Clipper brings a "packable" fat bike snow to the Twin Cities. We enjoy a few days of riding snow as temperature stay below freezing through Wednesday. Trail openings will be temporary, however, as 40s return by Friday.
Clippers are often fast-moving, moisture-deprived storms bringing one to three inches with each hit. This most recent clipper passing south of the state has had a bit more energy and moisture resulting in slightly higher totals. This clipper goes on to join forces with an East Coast low that will bring about blizzard conditions from Philadelphia to Boston by midweek.
We stay in the freezer through at least Wednesday. Below freezing temperatures ensure the snow sticks around for much of this week. Take advantage while you can. Temperatures in the 40s (maybe even 50°) return this weekend.
Summer brings warm afternoons perfect for biking, but the summer heat and humidity can also spark thunderstorms and severe weather. Be prepared for any type of adverse weather headed your way with Aeris Pulse.
