It appears the massive winterstorm slamming the Midwest and Lakes will have been the biggest snowstorm to strike the Minneapolis/St Paul area since the infamous Halloween blizzard of 91 as between 1-2 feet of snow now cripples this metro area. Other areas across Minnesota have picked up some 30+ inches of the shite stuff and it keeps on falling!

As this system pushes east and produces blizzard conditions to the Chicago and Detroit areas, frigid air is being drawn down from the heart of northern Canada, likely pushing lows to the mid-20s below zero from northern North Dakota, Minnesota to Wisconsin and even the UP of Michigan come tomorrow morning and over the next few days. Minneapolis could fall towards -5 for the low in the morning, minus 25 for International Falls and even a minus 30 for Tower or Embarrass, MN.

India & Sub-Continental Asia Weather

Post from Thursday, December 09, 2010

The erstwhile system from the Bay has now fizzled out in the NE states. But not before precipitating rains all thru A.P, Orissa, Jharkhand and into the NE states thru Bangladesh.
As a result, the season’s first snowfall in Arunachal Pradesh occurred at the picturesque Tawang town situated at 14,000 feet above sea level, with the temperature dropping to -3c.

“The entire Tawang town has been covered by about two to three inches of snow this morning,” official sources said.

After Friday, 10th. Dec, we may see the rains diminishing in the southern peninsula regions. Weekend rains will be restricted to the NE states.

No more syetms from the Bay in the offing now. And no systems in the west, nor any W.Ds. So its very posssible we may see all of India almost dry by 13th. Dec till at least 16th. December.

As mentioned night temperatures in North-Western, Western and Western parts of Central India are expected to drop by 2/3 c from Sunday12th.Dec.night. Gujarat, western Mah., Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi would feel the effect of cooler nights this weekend.

But, this cooling, which will actually be about 2/3c below normal level, will be back to normal from Tuesday night.

Mumbai Forecast unchanged.
