A major snowstorm for the Midwest through Tuesday.
The same storm that brought deadly severe weather to the southern U.S. over the weekend will dump a foot of snow across parts of the Midwest through Wednesday.
Plowable and Packable 2WheelWeather snow projections are 6"-8" for the metro. Murphy-Hanrehan, Lebanon may see amounts over 8". Elm Creek close to 6". While good snow for fatbike singletrack trails, major highways and interstates could be treacherous with drifting snow into Wednesday.
Run-to-run agreement in the computer models is one (out of many) ingredients for an accurate snowfall forecast. This storm has been particularly challenging since various models project a wide range of accumulations. The latest guidance has decreased amounts. The NAM model solution (above) hints at 6.5" for MSP...we think this is a pretty good bet.
Take Home Message: This will be our biggest snow event this season. Enough to bring out the big grooming guns on the singletrack. Expect lowers amounts NW of the metro, while areas southeast of the Twin Cities will be right on the edge of almost 10 inches. Fatbike lovers, we are making up for lost time in the snow with this storm.
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.
