Upper air disturbance = some snow for AM rush:

It’s weak, but it’s enough to kick off a band of snow showers this morning. Look for light, to in some cases moderate snow showers this morning from St. Cloud through the metro to Rochester and Eau Claire.

You won’t be counting inches, but even a coating to an inch can make for some slick spots today on your morning drive.

Sun returns: Another “January Thaw: ahead!

Remember that old saying “If you don’t like the weather just wait 15 minutes?”

That’s what we may be living today as AM snow gives way to PM sunshine and milder temps. We should crack the thawing point by late afternoon.

Cooler weekend; but “Thawmageddon” ahead?

Another cold front will return us to realty with teens and 20s this weekend. After that, the maps look favorable for more thaws next week, including the potential for a really BIG one along about February 7-10th.

It’s too early to be fully confident, but several model runs have hinted at a major thaw, with temps possibly returning to the 40s..and yes even 50 if we lose enough snow.

What a weird winter…

Stay tuned!
