Christmas Day Miracle Storm

Recommended Posts

Models are now coming into agreement on a decent storm on Christmas Day for much of Minnesota, parts of the Dakotas and Wisconsin.  Sadly it will be too far north for a Christmas Miracle down this way, but what a fun Christmas Day snow this will be for those impacted.  Good luck to those in the path.

No miracle storm., just a typical Christmas Blanket.  Warming up to 82* and dropping to 60*.   
 

We’ll have to cope with 93% Sunshine and a light breeze!  Surf’s up!

😎🎄🥗🎁🎁🍻 Merry Christmas !

In fitting with this post title of Christmas  miracle snow events. Here at Grand Rapids Michigan they are not very common. The biggest Christmas snow miracle snow event in my life time was in 1965 when here at Grand Rapids there was no snow on the ground as of late in the day on the 24th the high for the 24 was 50. But after sunset the snow started and here in GR there was 6" by Christmas morning.  So other years that snow fell on the 24 just in time to make a white Christmas were in 1966, 1997 and last year when one inch fell on the 24th just in time for that 1" of snow on the ground on the 25th At this time that don't look to happen this year.

Why? Is it just north of you or something?

Marshall missed out on last year's Christmas day snows, but in 2002 (my first yr there) we had 8" on the 24-25th from a storm that wasn't even forecast to come up into The Mitt.

The next year 2003 also hit on the 24-25th with about 4", and ofc the more recent 2017 storm brought ~6". 

So, since relocating back to SMI in '02 there have been a few good "miracle storms". Honorable mention goes to the Boxing Day storm in 2012 that was a solid 3-4"

@FAR_Weatherwill get to enjoy a White Christmas...brother, your in for a real treat of some wild winter wx for at least the next 10 days.  Talk about "building the glacier" up north.  My goodness, your gonna be living in the extremes of some brutal cold air as a lobe of the PV makes a visit right as Santa departs.

Ahh, I must have missed that post...well, I'd say enjoy the wx down there but it appears it isn't to bright neither.  Your down in So Cal I imagine?  By Carlsbad?

Well, at least you can enjoy somewhat warmer weather before you head back to the Arctic Tundra and white landscape....your type of wx!
