The St. Paul Winter Carnival continues this weekend with a more wintry scene than what we had through the early part of January. Record setting temperatures in the 50s and 60s had event planners and ice sculptors a littler worried. However, the Arctic blast that we had last week with single digit high temperatures and overnight lows dipping below zero 3 times (nearly 16 times below normal) and the few snow burps this last week, folks are breathing a little easier. If your weekend plans take you to St. Paul for any of the festivities, the weather won't disappoint. We'll continue that wintry feel with a little light snow developing later today and temperatures falling to more normal levels tomorrow, we've had much worse before.
A strong Pacific jet will jam several Pacific storms along Canada's west coast through the next several days. The relentless battering there will result in a somewhat active weather pattern for us as remnants of those systems wiggle through our neck of the woods. Nothing significant, but extended model runs hint at warm enough air for a rain and snow mix during Tuesday's system. On average, winter worst of the cold is over.
