Weather Blog: A Mild St. Patrick’s Day

By Chris Shaffer, WCCO-TV

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The mild air will stick around for another day as warm air lingers ahead of an advancing cold front. We have another shot at 50 degrees.

Now the passage of that cold front could trigger a few sprinkles — not a downpour, sprinkles. You might want to have an umbrella handy just in case.

We will dry out Friday and see some sunshine, but cooler air will spill over the region behind that frontal boundary. But highs should remain above average in the 40s.

Saturday will feature more sunshine with a shot at 50.

    I am the Scoutmaster of Troop 534 in Hastings, MN. Our troop is hosting a district/council level merit badge saturday on November 5th, 2011 in Hastings. I am hoping that we could get a meteorologist to teach the boys the weather merit badge. Is this something that you or your colleagues might be interested in? Thank you for your consideration.

    It is 8:15 am in the Dassel area. I am half way between Dassel and Hutchinson. I have measured 15 inches of snow in a spot where the wind does not blow and it is still coming down. What about the 2 inches that were projected?
