It may not exactly be the Mega Storm, but compared to the tame winter we've had this could provide some fun.  I may actually get to use my snow blower!  It's always easier to get snow this time of year than in the Fall because we know it won't be here for months on end.


A large area of low pressure coupled with a trough in the jetstream is prognosticated to sweep over the Northland into Sunday and Monday. Although it is 4 days out, confidence in this system is high because 3 long range models are agreeing on this scenario. As of now I am willing to say snow will likely start Sunday afternoon, but timing is tricky as the models are differing on when the precip arrives.

As of now, it looks like snow totals could range in the 4-8" range with high wind gusts up to 30-40mph
