A little snippet of the weather forecast right now…
WIDESPREAD MODERATE TO HEAVY SNOW WILL AFFECT MOST OF THE NORTHLAND
WEDNESDAY...GRADUALLY ENDING FROM SOUTHWEST TO NORTHEAST WEDNESDAY
NIGHT. ADDITIONAL WIDESPREAD SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS FROM 8 TO 14
INCHES ARE EXPECTED...WITH AN ADDITIONAL 15 TO 20 INCHES ALONG
PORTIONS OF THE NORTH SHORE OF LAKE SUPERIOR...INCLUDING PARTS OF
THE CITY OF DULUTH. THIS WILL BRING 3-DAY STORM TOTAL SNOWFALL TO
BETWEEN 20 AND 30 INCHES IN MANY LOCATIONS...AND SOME LOCALIZED
STORM TOTAL AMOUNTS NEAR 3 FEET ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE HIGHER
TERRAIN JUST INLAND FROM THE NORTH SHORE FROM DULUTH...TO TWO
HARBORS...SILVER BAY AND LUTSEN.
That is right folks, 20-30 inches with isolated amounts near 3 feet. Not bad for the first storm of the year.
We already have 10 inches or so at the ranch, with 2-4 more tonight before the 15-20 inch blast hits tomorrow. As a result of expecting between to have between 27 and 34 inches of snow on the ground from the first storm of the winter I am going to go find my cross country ski stuff and plan on making a time of it out there tonight. This storm is turning out awesome!
I bought my ski pass last night, school is already cancelled for tomorrow, I am feeling awesome! Lets get this party started!
