The January thaw we've been experiencing doesn't appear to be going anywhere soon, but the likelihood of several inches of snow is looking more likely for central and southern Minnesota Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.
The weather in Central Minnesota has been great this past week and I have noticed a few certain things happening because of it. Chances are good you are guilty of at least one of the activities on this list.
Over the holidays, my boyfriend Dustin got me a GoPro! And since the weather was so nice this past weekend, we hooked it up to my dog Piper and let her run around a frozen lake. Check out the GoPro video here!
A wintry mix of snow and freezing rain will lead to slick roads and difficult driving conditions Monday afternoon through Monday night. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued from Noon Monday through Tuesday morning for areas south and east of St. Cloud, including Sherburne County.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for portions of Central Minnesota including Sherburne County in effect from 6 AM Monday through Noon on Tuesday. A mix of freezing rain, snow, and sleet are possible. Stay tuned for updates.
You think it's cold in Minnesota this morning? You should have been in East Antartica in August of 2010 when the coldest temperature ever on Earth was recorded. Scientists say that the temperature that day was equivalent to a nice summer day on Mars.
The coldest temperature ever recorded in Minnesota is just the seventh coldest temp ever in the U.S. That record belongs to Prospect Creek, Alaska where it hit -80˚ on January 20, 1971. Here are the ten coldest temps ever recorded in Minnesota history.
Heads up, you're likely going to need extra time to get where you're going again Wednesday morning as another round of snow is expected to affect the morning commute. Leave early, slow down, and stay out of the ditch (or worse).
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 6:00 this evening for most of Central Minnesota including Stearns, Benton, and Sherburne Counties. Snow and blowing snow will continue throughout the day creating poor visibility and slick conditions.
It looks like we'll see some sun this weekend, but it's still gonna be cold. The snow moves in with a chance on Monday -- becoming more likely on Tuesday, with several inches of accumulation possible (and warmer next week). Stay tuned.
The National Weather Service has issued another Wind Chill Advisory in effect until 10:00 a.m. Friday morning. The wind chill advisory covers much of the region with wind chill values from 20 below to 30 below zero expected.
