Enough, really!

This is becoming the springtime of our discontent.

Another late season winter weather system is winding up through west central and northern Minnesota. As of this report, moderate to in some cases heavy snow is falling from near Sioux Falls, Huron, and Aberdeen, SD into Ortonville, Alexandria, and Little Falls, MN.

The Minnesota surface map below clearly shows the swirling wind barbs around the center of low pressure in eastern MN. Track the center as it moves through northern Wisconsin tonight.

    I’ve lived all my life (almost 50 years) but one year in Minnesota, but I don’t remember ever having a snowstorm this late in April. When was the last time we had a winter storm of this magnitude this late in spring?

    Thanks for your great forecasting and reporting!
