By now it is no secret that the trails are icy. Studded tires have been recommended at all Twin Cities trailheads. A few opportunities of snow this week may be enough to hide the ice and gain some extra traction on the singletrack.
California is getting hammered by Pacific storms this week. This Pineapple Express weather set up will draw unusually warm, moist air into the West Coast to produce dangerous flooding. Energy from these storms will routinely move across the Upper Midwest, significantly increasing Minnesota's likelihood for snow.
Occasional, light snow can be expected almost every day this week with the model average snowfall forecast indicating around 4 inches of new snow by Thursday.
The snow is then followed by the coldest stretch of weather yet this winter. (Yes! The air is about to get even colder!) We will spend Friday far below zero degree with a record strong Canadian high pressure right overhead. The brutal cold is short-lived, however. We thaw out by late January.
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.
