29. After no snow overnight (busted NWS forecast!) it's finally kicking in this morning. However, Koochiching, St Louis, and Itasca counties in Minnesota received up to 5 inches last night. The radar shot (to the right) was taken at 10:08 this morning. The strongest echoes are from Ashland, up through my place on Maple Hill, and across the rest of the Bayfield Peninsula.
In the 10 AM hour snow was reported falling at Siren, Rice Lake, Hayward, Ashland, and Superior.
Visibilities ranged from 1 mile at Hayward to 4 miles at Ashland.
(More webcams across the region are listed in one of my blogs from December 9, 2007.) Currently in Duluth's Harbor it is 28 degrees, with a dewpoint of 26. Wind is 4 knots from th west. Moderate snow is falling with a visibility of 2 miles.
Light flakes began here on the hill at 9:00 this morning and turned into moderate snow with larger flakes by 9:30. We need the precipitation - the last snow we received was January 2nd with 4 inches.
My picture (to the right) was taken at 10:20, looking out my dining room window. As of this morning we had 12.5 inches of snow on the ground; so far this Winter 40.645 inches have fallen.
After yesterday's forecast of 3 inches of snow overnight, I'm wary of the computer models, but it seems we could get up to an inch of new snow today.
