Get ready fatbikers. A "packable" snow on the way this weekend. Snow begins Friday night and continues into Saturday. By Saturday afternoon, 4"-6" of new snow could blanket the singletrack. Colder conditions (below freezing) will keep the ground frozen through New Year's Eve. Happy holidays and happy riding!
A Colorado low sweeps across the Midwest on Saturday, spreading snow from Rapid City, SD into the Twin Cities. If this storm track verifies, it could be our highest snowfall event yet this season.
Notice that the highest probability of 2 inches of snow or more is across southern Minnesota. Holiday travel along the I-90 corridor could be slick and snow covered, especially early Saturday morning. The probability of a "plowable" snow is even less north of I-94. Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike trails may miss this snow event, whereas the MORC trails win out. Both receive cold enough air to keep the ground frozen through the extended forecast.
The National Weather Service Twin Cities forecast shows as much as 4"-6" of snow across the metro Saturday.
Holiday Weekend Weather
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.
