Here's a look at Hurricane Seymour in the Eastern Pacific from Tuesday evening, which was a major category 4 storm with winds sustained at 130mph
The latest forecast track from NOAA's HPC suggests that Seymour will weaken over the next few days as it drifts northwest.
Temps will remain quite chilly across the Northeast over the next several days as the trough of low pressure continues to cycle down colder Canadian.
Lingering cold air in the Northeast will set the stage for additional snowfall as another storm system moves in from the west. It appears that the heaviest will be found across the far north and in the highest elevations.
As our next storm system moves in from the west, snowfall accumulations will begin to tally up. Here's a look at how much snowfall could be possible through the weekend. Keep in mind that the heaviest will be found in the highest elevations.
AM Puddles, Slow Clearing Wednesday. Mild By Friday
The pitter-patter of an October rain lulls us to sleep Tuesday night. Waking up to puddles Wednesday morning, it's hard not to think about how wet it's been this year.
Prior to Tuesday's rain, the Twin Cities was 7 inches above normal precipitation since January 1st. I've noticed several muddy ruts in farmer fields, but they're getting the job done. According to the USDA, 55% of the corn and 95% of the soybeans in Minnesota have been harvested. Thanks to wet conditions this fall, harvests have been running up to 1 week behind the five-year average.
The good news is that after last night's dose of heavier rains across southern Minnesota, we should dry out for a few days. The mercury tips the 60 degree mark by Friday, which will be nearly 10 degrees.
We cool back down on Saturday, close to October norms, but the temperature roller coaster continues into early next week. The 2016 Halloween preview looks mild with a few showers. BOO!
According to the Climate Prediction Center, we stay warmer than average into early November.
2010: The lowest pressure on record for Minnesota occurs in the town of Bigfork, with a reading of 28.21 inches of mercury (955.30 mb). Very strong winds were widespread throughout the state, with peak gusts of 65 mph recorded at both Georgeville (Stearns County) and Mehurin Township (Lac Qui Parle County).
