The month to date snowfall in the Twin Cities is now 6 inches below normal. Last year we had 5 inches by this time! Over the past weekend Rock Rapids, Iowa received a whopping 16 inches of snow. Minneapolis/St.Paul barely saw a flake. Our snow drought could come to and end on Thanksgiving Day...
A slowing storm will drag light drizzle over the area Wednesday, eventually changing to all snow on Thanksgiving Day. Minor snow accumulations (one half to one inch) expected, especially across southeastern Minnesota.
If the Twin Cities fails to pick up 0.1" of snow or greater on Thursday, then we have a chance of getting into December without any measurable snow. This is rare! Snow data record in the Twin Cities go back to 1884 and only two other years (1928 & 1963) saw the first measureable snow hold off until December.
The lack of cold air has resulted in a November of rain. If the month were to end today, we'd be looking at the 7th wettest November on record in the Twin Cities.
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.
