Early Frost Out: Our trails saw a great reduction in the frost level to a depth of 10-12 inches due to the unusually warm conditions of last weekend. According to MN State Climatologist, Mark Seeley, the loss of this much frost so early in the season will allow the soil to absorb more precipitation that is to come later this month.
Drought Returns: Last week 5% of the state was in moderate drought, this week 88% now in moderate drought. NOAA's Climate Prediction Center just released predictions for meteorological spring (April, May, June). Odds favor Minnesota having a slight dry and warmer than average spring season.
Only 30% of the time did an early spring drought continue into the summer months, according to MN state climatologist Mark Seeley.
Total Solar Eclipse 2017: The U.S. may have missed the total solar eclipse on Friday (primarily visible over the northern Atlantic Ocean and parts of Europe) but on August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will be seen by the entire nation. The sky will go completely dark for a full 2 minutes of Kentucky and Illinois. Mark your calendars!
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.
