Weaher Blog: A Part Of History

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — We have just lived through the driest autumn in Twin Cities history. This goes back over the past 141 years.

We’ve only had 1.36 inches of precipitation, which is almost 6 inches below average for the three months. Also, we are almost 7 inches below average when it comes to snowfall this season. Quite a difference from last year.

There is a big storm on the horizon, but, at this point, it looks to take a swing at southeastern Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Friday will feature plenty of sunshine with a near average high of 32 degrees. Then the storm comes our way. The snow will start to fall early on Saturday and linger into Sunday.

Travel southeast of here will be difficult. We could get grazed by this storm with snow in the southeastern suburbs while the northwest escapes dry.

I will keep an eye on this storm’s track over the next few days.
