Random Weather Update

An Alberta clipper is to blame for the flurries and snow showers flying through the air today. Those flakes will diminish this evening, but watch for icy spots on the street. Any melting that took place will refreeze forming patchy black ice. Temperatures will tumble into the mid 10s to low 20s.

A second clipper is diving down from Canada tonight, affecting Minnesota. This disturbance will quickly rotate through the state tomorrow providing mostly cloudy skies with a period of light snow and flurries. Some areas could pick up a fresh coating to an inch of fresh powder during the afternoon. Hey, what’s another inch of snow at this point? Temperatures will remain near 30 degrees.

Sunday will be dry but chilly with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 20s. With more chilly air next week, there is no melting on the way for the snow stuck on the side of the road. Our next chance for a big storm will be on Wednesday with a wintry mix possible.
