Latest Minnesota Weather
A fierce storm produced more than a foot of snow in some parts of Minnesota early Friday, where authorities advised against travel and schools closed, once again, during the long, grueling winter. And WCCO’s Mike Augustyniak said bitter cold temperatures moving back in aren’t going anywhere anytime soon.
Thursday’s snow storm will have a major impact on travelers, and it could have a long-lasting effect on anyone who parks on Minneapolis streets. Patrick Hogan, spokesperson for Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, says they’ve got a full 24-hour staff on standby to plow. But fewer runways will be in use, and he expects small regional flights to be canceled first. “Based on the forecast, it’s pretty clear they are not going to be able to fly the full schedule, so they’ll start canceling flights later tonight,” Hogan said. “Normally, [there are ] between 60 and 90 flights an hour. Tomorrow, we’re expecting more like between 25 and 35 flights an hour.”
You’ve seen the latest forecast. You know that snow’s coming. Maybe not quite enough to leave you entirely cut off from civilization, but certainly enough to leave you unwilling to leave the house. So why not check out one of these five frigid masterpieces?
Allow me, if you will, to speak for just about everyone who has emailed me in the past month: we’re ready for spring! At this point in February, of course, spring isn’t ready for us… but it is time to start thinking about the spring flood season.
Four score and seven inches ago … (Get it? Because it’s President’s Day? Just go with it.) Yes, another round of intense snowfall is currently falling with parts of the state anticipating up to seven inches of fresh new fluff.
As the title might imply, most meteorologists are interested in way more than the weather. Like meteors; all things space, really. That’s why this new picture from NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity caught my attention today.
With many schools in the area now on their fifth day off due to extreme cold conditions, some parents may understandably be trying to figure out how to combat cabin fever. Once again, the Mall of America’s Nickelodeon Universe is offering free rides.
The death of a motorist whose car got stuck in the snow in McLeod County may be weather related. The sheriff’s department says it received a report Monday of a man who had been missing since Sunday night.
Another round of subzero temperatures, high winds and drifting snow forced most Minnesota schools to stay closed Monday, with Minneapolis and St. Paul public schools already canceling classes for Tuesday.
Meteorologist Mike Augustyniak once again traded a few barbs with the morning crew from KNX 1070 NEWSRADIO in southern California on Monday morning. The last time Augustyniak talked with Dick Helton and the rest of them was during our blisteringly cold Christmas Eve.
An unusual weather pattern driving bitterly cold air from the Arctic Circle south across a huge swath of the Midwest is expected to send temperatures plummeting Monday from Minneapolis to Louisville, Ky., the latest punch from a winter that is in some areas shaping up as one of the coldest on record.
The extreme cold isn’t just uncomfortable. It’s becoming expensive, too, especially for homeowners in rural Minnesota who rely on propane to heat their homes. Prices jumped last fall, and with several subzero nights this winter, the cost of propane continues to climb.
Another band of arctic air is descending into the northern U.S., bringing a wave of frigid temperatures expected to linger for most of the week. Temperatures plunged below zero in North Dakota and northern Minnesota on Monday morning.
The polar vortex that gripped much of the country has moved on, but don’t get too comfortable — another round of frigid air is expected to arrive next week across the northern U.S., from the Dakotas eastward to New England. It’ll be cold, but not the life-threatening cold of last week.
