Break in the action
We come up for air the next week with a break in the snow parade. I can imagine plow drivers will need to catch up on sleep.
Right now the forecast models don’t spin any significant snow system into the Upper Midwest in the next week, maybe two weeks. Some light snow may sweep in Thursday and again Sunday.
Temperatures look seasonably chilly for the next one to two weeks. It is still February after all.
Deep snow cover
There’s plenty of fresh snow to get out and play in. Here’s the latest map.
With over 2 feet of snow in some parts of Minnesota, the next two weeks may be the best for outdoor recreation this winter.
