2/17-2/19 Weather (Somethings brewing, but might just be coffee)


Recommended Posts

Prob just the coffee unless your heading up north...if you believe the Euro, you may score some outta this...what looked good a couple days ago isn't trending that way down here.  The energy gets split up and the blocking up in S Canada splits up instead of one solid HP like it was showing a few days ago.

From MPX: someone south/east might see the goods.....

 

Given the need to refine the track a bit and wait for

another run for the sake of consistency, will hold off on a Winter

Weather Advisory for now. This will also give us a chance to see

if a narrow ribbon of counties could even need a Warning, given

model cross sections are indicating weak CSI and the potential for

slantwise convection (thundersnow). Raised snowfall totals to the

3-5" range from south central MN into west central WI, tapering

off to 1-3" across most of the Twin Cities metro, and down to a

half inch or less in St Cloud/Alexandria.

Pound town here for quite awhile. Not building up but huge flakes at a moderate rate for the past few hours. Most beautiful daytime snow of the season so far.

 

Melting at a good rate though...

:lol:   Got a 2-min headline for a few flakes or snizzle & 33F. Serriously??   :rolleyes:

 

 

Edit - This morning on my commute it was only from 5-8 pm (shortest winter headline I can remember) but I see late morning it was extended.

 

.UPDATE...

Issued at 1053 AM EST Mon Feb 17 2020

Will make a minor adjustment to the advisory to extend the ending
time a bit for the southern areas, particularly for the LAN/JXN
areas where the colder air hangs on a few hours longer than at AZO
and South Haven. The end time at LAN/JXN will now be same as at
GRR (1 AM).

It is still snowing in Dubuque.  There is a recent report of 1.5".  I think the models had it changed to rain by now.  Madison should get a nice hit.

Just got home...all secondary roads are a mess. About 2" 15 mi south of madison....I'd say a solid 3 in Madison from just eyeballing while driving

How was it up there this weekend? Usually one of the busier weekends of the year.

Sunday-Boulder up to Gile on 13...first tracks, then up to Lake Superior and Banged the Grade Back to Mani and then back to Boulder, 200mi day.
