Talk about drought-busting rains! Our trails, statewide, have received between 1-3 inches of rain this week...and more rain is on the way this weekend. In fact, conditions might get cold enough early Sunday morning for a little graupel aka snow pellets!
Saturday: Abrupt end to rain early, remaining cloudy. H: 64° Wind: SE 5
Saturday Night: Light, cold rain increases. L: 44° Wind: N 5-10
Sunday: Cloudy, cool, drizzle. Yuck. H: 55° L: 42° Wind: NW 10
Monday: Sunny and seasonable. H: 64° L: 50° Wind: N 5-10
Tuesday: Sunny, warming up. H: 71° L: 54° Wind: SE 5-10
Wednesday: Partly sunny. H: 74° L: 56° Wind: S 10
This is our first dynamic, deep, low pressure storm of the season. This thing has brought blizzard conditions to the Black Hills of South Dakota, tornadic supercell storms in Iowa, and heavy rains across Minnesota. Abundant moisture straight from the Gulf of Mexico has aided in the big rain totals across our state.
Temperatures aloft Sunday morning (white color in the map above) show conditions will be below freezing...cold enough to support snow. BUT with a lack of any true arctic air with this system, it might be tough to get the flakes to fly. Still small hail, snow pellets aka graupel could fall outside the city limits early Sunday morning....just sayin'.
