For those making plans on visiting Minnesota this weekend you should no they are talking about a snow storm!
First off the Duluth National Weather service has issued a Snow Storm watch from Duluth to International Falls and up in the Grand Maris area.
This watch was issued today from what I saw on the news. Anything issued this early means that their very well could be alot of snow involved with this system.
Anyone making plans to fly in and out of MSP should check the weather, as the Twin Cities will be affected by this system.
All week they had been talking that at sometime Sunday we would get it in the Twin Cities.
However right now the future radar totals for the snow is playing games with the weather people right now. They can not get an exact amount that could fall in the Twin Cities area. But there will be a Watch at some point issued from what one person said on Tv.

Resist the urge to buy into the weather terrorists up here in the twin cities. They can take a 1-2 inch snowfall and make people believe the sky is falling and the stores are running out of food!!!

RESIST!!!!

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

It might snow in Minnesota in December - is this supposed to be revolutionary or earth-shattering news?

No, but it is suppose to support every eco-nuts theory on global warming....I would like to hear Al Gore's reasoning on the snow in the deep south.

And I thought Southern California was the only place where people freak out when moisture in some form falls from the sky.

Three drops of "rain" coming from above, and it is not only the lead story on every local news channel, but it is the ONLY story.

The one thing that Minnesotans know how to handle better than almost anyone else on the planet is digging out after a snowstorm and getting their state moving again. MSP might be closed for a while for clearing the runways and tarmacs, but if you're going to live in this region, cold winters with lots of snow are in the brochure.

As for travellers, well, I know they seem to be phasing out geography throughout the United States, but if you book a ticket via sunny MSP in December, well...you deserve to become a human popsicle.

Minnesota will survive.

Minnesota is very much due for a good snowstorm. We have not had a good one since the October 31st storm in the early 90s.  Big grin
Nothing like a good stalled Alberta Clipper dumping 18 to 30 inches of snow on you!
But be prepared for delays and canceled flights if your travel plans include MSP on Sunday.
