I took this afternoon off to get some things done before the snowstorm. I got the remaining ice off the roof and fixed (finally) the snowblower tire. I also got my grocery shopping done. I was planning on only getting the shopping and ice done today, then the snowblower tomorrow, but the storm is going to hit sooner so I did both today. Was a nice sunny warm day, we hit 38°F.
It doesn’t look like I’m going anywhere this weekend.
So let’s see, 12-23 inches of snow in the next couple days. Then add in some winds at 45 MPH and this could be the making of a fun storm.
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 7 AM EST /6 AM CST/ TO 7 PM EST /6 PM CST/ SATURDAY
WINTER STORM WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM SATURDAY EVENING THROUGH LATE SUNDAY NIGHT
Light to moderate snow expected during the day Saturday. Accumulations during this period are expected to be 2 to 5 inches. Beginning Saturday night, heavy snow and mixed precipitation is likely. Total snow accumulations of 10 to 18 inches, except 9 to 12 inches from Marquette to Skandia. Winds could gust as high as 45 mph on Sunday, leading to areas of blowing and drifting snow, especially near Lake Superior.
