First seasonal snowfall across the state possible later this week

Our warm, and dry weather conditions with not much happening that has dominated the region over the last several months will come to an end soon as Thursday into Friday could bring the first snowfall of the 2012-13 season to Minnesota, specifically, the northwest portion of the state.  The models seem to be hinting at least at a few inches of the white stuff.



A powerful low pressure system, injected with Arctic air, sweeping across the international border is responsible for this early season snow.


While some may dread the thought of snow in early October, the area of the state being affected by this storm system is in great need of moisture.  Much of northwestern Minnesota is in “extreme” drought stage.

  1. That wind forecast map is really striking. Meteorology has become steadily more beautiful in the last few years.
