Snow: on the ground and from the Lake.

This map (to the right) is from the NOHRSC and shows snow depth across the contiguous US from yesterday.

The National Snow Analysis yesterday (23rd) had 26.8% of the US covered by snow.

Today I measured 18.5 inches on the ground at my location.

Yesterday's snow.

A weak cold front slid south through Wisconsin yesterday. This map (to the left) is from the HPC and shows surface features at 7:00 yesterday morning.

Western Lake Superior is beginning to thaw and winds behind the cold front turned enough to the northeast to allow lake-effect snow to kick in.

Snow began in the early morning hours yesterday and ended after noon.

Radar and reports.

My radar screenshot (
to the right) is from Duluth and shows the snow coming off Lake Superior at 9:56 yesterday morning. Radar was overshooting the lake-snow echoes east of the Bayfield Peninsula, but the snowbelt of Wisconsin received measurable snow.

Day after the Full Worm Moon.

The full moon in March occurred on the 21st at 13:40. Times and dates of the phases of the moon can be found on the U.S. Naval Obsveratory's website.

The sky was clear on the evening of the 22nd, so I wanted to try to get a picture of the moon through the branches.

There are many names for full moons, I found a couple sites: Moon Names, Wikipedia, & The Farmer's Almanac.

Looking ahead.

NWS Duluth is forecasting 1 to 3 inches of snow (mixed with rain) this evening and overnight for northern Wisconsin, 3 to 5 inches across northeastern Minnesota.

Then all eyes turn to Thursday when a shortwave trough moves across Nebraska and South Dakota. Models are not in agreement on the path or the intensity of the system, the NAM takes snow across western and central Wisconsin while the GFS and MM5 keep snow across the southern half of Wisconsin. Unless the models start nudging the system farther north, it looks like northern Wisconsin will not see any precipitation.
