This edition of Point Blank Range Forecasts will focus on low temperatures in Texas. Before this weekend’s outlook is revealed though, it is a look back at the last forecast.
Last weekend’s forecast involved the major cities in Michigan, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Below are the weekend totals for each.
Detroit, MI: 1.3
Flint, MI: 2.1
Grand Rapids, MI: 2.9
Lansing, MI: 1.1
Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN: 1.5
Green Bay, WI: 4.1
Madison, WI: 5.1
Milwaukee, WI: 5.4
Bull’s Eye: All eight listed areas receive at least 3 inches of snow this weekend.
On Target: Four to seven of the listed areas receive at least 3 inches of snow this weekend.
Complete Miss: Four or more of the listed areas receive less than 3 inches of snow this weekend.
Three of the eight reached the 3 inch mark, so that is a Complete Miss. Grand Rapids was 1 tenth of an inch away from making it On Target.
Here are the updated results for the season, combined with the Golden Snowball site.

A tough weekend for me as both the GSB and GSG forecasts resulted in Complete Miss outlooks. That brings my average down to 0.75, below the goal for the end of the season. There are eight more forecasts remaining this season, so I still have plenty of time to reach that mark.
Now on to this weekend’s outlook. As mentioned earlier, this edition focuses on low temperatures in Texas. Temperatures are expected to be below average for this time of year, and I believe a majority the 5 biggest cities in Texas (Austin, Dallas/Forth Worth, El Paso, Houston and San Antonio) will be below freezing at some point in the weekend, Friday night through Sunday.
Bull’s Eye: All five listed have sub freezing low temperatures this weekend.
On Target: Three or four listed have sub freezing low temperatures this weekend.
Complete Miss: Two or fewer listed have sub freezing low temperatures this weekend.
Remember to check out the Golden Snowball site to see that update. Have a great weekend everyone and try to stay warm!
