WEDNESDAY: Winter Solstice arrives at 5:38pm. It's OFFICIALLY winter!! Partly cloudy, slightly warmer. High: Around 20
THURSDAY: Christmas EVE EVE looking like a partly snowy travel day. Uncertainty level on snow chances, high! Stay tuned. High: Low 20s
"I can take the snow, but I can't take the cold." I can't tell you how many times I've heard that phrase and yes, I guess I can agree with that to some degree. Every times I see those big blobs of Arctic air breaking loose from the Arctic on the weather models, I tend to cringe a little more. I'm not sure I'm such a big fan of everything getting so cold that it creaks and cracks. However, Minnesota tradition would tell you that we are to embrace the cold and snow. What would we be without a little outdoor hockey or a little fishing on a frozen lake through a small hole in the ice. Have you ever taken a hot sauna and then jumped into a snowbank or a frigid lake during winter? For some, this is the best time of the year, for others, it stinks!
Monday Snow Chance Increasing
Computer models keep printing out a blob of moisture over central and southern Minnesota on Monday. Temperatures are cold enough for snow... Still a developing storm, but chances of accumulating snow are growing.
Another Pre-Xmas Snow?
This system isn't as impressive, but the extended model is still printing out a little moisture on or around Christmas Eve. Maybe another one of those finicky clipper systems with a narrow band of light fluffy snow?
You Have to See This!
Check out this lighthouse in Cleveland. Strong winds and freezing temperatures on Lake Erie caused freezing spray to encase this lighthouse. See the full story and video from the Washington Post HERE:
