Early morning wind chills dip to -25F at Brainerd and -15F in the Twin Cities. Good incentive to sleep in 'til the crack of noon. If it's any consolation, this Alberta Drive-By will be be quick. Pacific air returns within 36 hours, with daytime highs well above 32F from Thursday into the first half of next week. The next chance of a snowy burst comes Monday; again Thursday of next week - but the pattern won't favor any more big, sloppy southern storms anytime soon. NOAA's CFSv2 climate model is predicting a much warmer than normal January for Canada and the northern USA. I have my doubts, but with an El Nino signal nothing would surprise me.

Thoughts On Latest National Climate Assessment In 20/20 hindsight I probably went too far out on a limb talking about this 20 years ago. But I was seeing apparent symptoms showing up in Minnesota's weather. I felt compelled to try and connect the dots and say something (out loud). Beyond the gloom and doom there is cause for optimism. Younger people are fired up, determined to turn rhetoric into action. A rapidly changing climate is already impacting our economy; costs are mounting. We need to become more climate-resilient: storm-proof, flood-resistant and drought-tolerant. We can and will It's been a bleak November for Minnesota snow-lovers, but the pattern is shifting, with more southern moisture flowing northward. An inch of slush is possible Wednesday, but a more significant storm may drop a few inches next weekend; maybe a BIG pile of snow for central Minnesota? It's way too early for details - but get ready for some snow. More details on the latest National Climate Assessment … [Read more...] about Sliding Into a Snowier Pattern?

MANKATO, Minn. — With his portrait framed on the wall, President Donald Trump watches over Jim Hagedorn’s subterranean campaign office here. Trump’s strong showing in this southern Minnesota district is the reason the open seat is one of Republicans’ few pickup opportunities this year. The president will be in nearby Rochester on Thursday, rallying supporters for the 1st District race Hagedorn has already lost three times before — the last time two years ago, just narrowly. Democratic-Farmer-Labor Rep. Tim Walz wasn’t expecting a close race then, but with Trump carrying the district by 15 points, he squeaked past Hagedorn by less than a point.
