Spring Fieldwork

.A WINTER STORM WATCH NOW COVERS ALL OF CENTRAL AND SOUTH CENTRAL
MINNESOTA AND WEST CENTRAL WISCONSIN FOR THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH
FRIDAY.. THIS INCLUDES THE TWIN CITIES METROPOLITAN AREA

A POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM WITH COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF MOISTURE WILL
TRACK FROM THE SOUTHERN PLAINS TONIGHT TO MISSOURI BY THURSDAY
NIGHT AND TO MICHIGAN BY FRIDAY NIGHT. A LARGE BATCH OF
PRECIPITATION...BEGINNING AS A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW...WILL TURN
TO ALL SNOW THURSDAY AFTERNOON AND CONTINUE THROUGH FRIDAY. SNOW
WILL BE HEAVY AT TIMES THURSDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH FRIDAY WITH 1 TO
2 INCH PER HOUR RATES POSSIBLE. TOTAL SNOW ACCUMULATIONS OF 6 TO
12 INCHES ARE EXPECTED...WITH THE HEAVIEST AMOUNTS FROM SOUTHWEST
MINNESOTA ACROSS THE TWIN CITIES TO NORTHERN WISCONSIN.


The last storm just dumped on the Dakotas and NWMN.  Here we are a few days later and this storm looks to track further south,

Hard to get rid of frost in the ground when this happens   Doesn't look like any April corn planting this year.

I like the term "copious amounts" better then the term "massive amounts".

Re: Spring Fieldwork

No worries........wasn't there a May snowstorm last year that produced a record corn crop?

Re: Spring Fieldwork

We are on the dry side here in SWMN and would take it, although still have plenty of frost..  The delays will be minimal.  We had lots of snow and it is gone.  I will believe it when I see it.  The last several forecast for rain/snow have been a miss here.  Last year we had more snow in April/May than we did all winter and we had a good crop.  We are forecasted to be in the mid upper 50's for highs and lows in the mid 30's next week so any snow will go away in a hurry.  Still early, nothing to get overly excited about here.
