King Boreas and Vulcanus Rex seem to have reached an agreement for this year’s Winter Carnival in St. Paul. A little bit of everything.

The forecast for the 2011 run of the Winter Carnival looks great, with a little something for everybody. Let’s break down the details for the next few days.

Thursday: Milder! Mixed clouds & flurries. Some PM sunny peeks. High near 32. Should be excellent conditions for strolling through Rice Park and checking out ice sculptures!

Friday: Micro thaw! Mixed clouds & snow showers with under 1″ of accumulation. High near 35 PM. A few hours above freezing, but not enough to cause any major problems with ice & snow sculptures.

Saturday: Boreas takes control again. Breezy & colder. Highs in the 20s with a cooler north wind. Pretty good day to check out the Grand Day Parade at 2pm in St. Paul!

Sunday: Slightly arctic. Temps in the teens. Snow may develop from west to east later in the day.

Monday: Chance of snow. Could be “shovelable” and affect rush hours. Maybe a few inches, but not a blockbuster storm at this point. Temps in the teens.

Tuesday through Friday: Colder next week with a gradual warming trend late in the week. Highs single digits to low teens. A couple of sub-zero mornings?

All in all, a GREAT looking, classic winter forecast for this year’s Winter Carnival run. Here a link to activities for this year’s Winter Carnival.

East Coast digs out:

The east coast snow storm was pretty impressive in some areas. Most areas saw 6″ (Washington, D.C.) to 12″ (Boston) with the storm, with some higher totals. Here’s the list from NYC NWS.
