Weather Blog: Record-Breaking Winter

By Chris Shaffer, WCCO-TV

We have made the top 10 in a category most would rather not be a part of…the snowiest winters on record.

And we still have a week of February and our second snowiest month to go (March).

Our average depth in the Twin Cities went from 2 inches to 14 inches after the big storm.

We catch a break with some peeks of sunshine Tuesday and a cool high near 23 degrees. We warm up nicely Wednesday with a near-average high of 32 degrees.

We may see some flurries (don’t freak out) that won’t stack up.

Another shot of snow Friday and Saturday as a mini-arctic blast comes our way this weekend.

Get used to the snow…it isn’t going anywhere.

    As a police officer now retired from Minneapolis serving 33 years I am still puzzled why residents cannot understand the snow emergency parking rules in Minneapolis.
    When the city declares a snow emergency they begin plowing that night 9 pm to 8 am all snow emergency routes.
    They are marked in TWO ways, one with a sign that says snow emergency route and by another –actually more easily noticed- a blue street sign. If you look out your CCO window at the street signs you will notice ALL street signs in the downtown area are blue. That means no parking anywhere downtown 9PM to 8AM. The city does not start enforcing that at 9 but waits a bit later in the routine. Recently parking has been permitted after the street has been fully plowed.
    Just to be safe, it would be smart not to park on any streets identified with blue street sign!
