  1. You’ll just have to settle for these then from yesterday. https://kwwl.com/2021/02/22/seasonal-snow-update https://www.weather.gov/dvn/obsmapsnowdepthmon
  2. This may not be the proper thread for this, but here are estimated snowfall amounts for the 2007-2008 season at this time of the year.
  3. I agree. Less sunlight reflecting off of the snow too. When you check visible satellite on a sunny day with snow cover, you can tell where the forests are.
  4. Even last year/season with 52” was snowier here, but winter isn’t over I guess. I didn’t quite hit 50” in ‘13 - ‘14.
  5. My core samples from 1” melted to 0.30” but not sure on accuracy (wouldn’t be lower) from that as had quite a bit of sleet and a bit of zr at first. All reports around me are much lower than even my cores, but I’m sure it was at least 0.30”. Lots of erroneous reporting? My winter liquid equivalent precipitation is normally higher than even official reports and it’s been that way for many years.
  6. I suppose the chinooks are warming up the high plains, but surprised how mild northeast Mn. is where it usually hits -40°!
  7. It’s hard to really say how deep the snow pack is here since much of it blew into drifts and in the open fields a lot of it blew away except for the hard crusty stuff.
  8. How can northern Mn. warm up as much and soon as here?
  9. I still have a long way to go to reach my 2007-2008 season total of just over 60”.
  10. I ended with at only 1.1” or so, but around 0.40” liquid! Was kinda hard to push the ruler down through the solid snow/sleet mix. Also a very thin layer of ice on things.
  11. It’s in the range for my area, but those maps have to much range within the higher amounts. That small blob of medium blue of up to 20” looks to be near Ottumwa, or no?
  12. Was around 70.4% coverage on the 15th when I saw these maps.
  13. I even had a few drops of rain mixed at the beginning. Very fine flakes or whatever for a long time, but finally really snowed for maybe 10 minutes, now back to light snow.
