With my plan to get to 9 or 10 PBR forecasts done by the end of the month, I’ll occasionally have to take a couple of “little snow” forecasts. While not ideal, I’d rather do that now than have to do something else in April. Besides, as long as I’m predicting SOME snow, it’s still good, right?
Before I get into the next forecast though, I have to look back at the previous one which involved Minneapolis, MN, Bismarck, ND, Fargo, ND, Aberdeen, SD and Pierre, SD. If at least one of them totaled a foot or more snow from the 28th to the 29th, that would be a Bull’s Eye. If all of them had at least 6 inches of snow, but none were over a foot, that’s On Target. Here are the totals:
Minneapolis, MN: 2.8
Bismarck, ND: 1.5
Fargo, ND: 4.4
Aberdeen, SD: 7.7
Pierre, SD: 5.5
I’m on quite the losing trend now. With four out of the five having less than 6 inches of snow, this is my 3rd straight Complete Miss.

With that, I fall to half of the goal. There are 4 more PBR and 2 more SITD forecasts left to be made. So I need to have a great ending stretch to reach the goal.
Let’s see if this forecast will get me back in the right direction. It features Billings, MT, Boise, ID, Denver, CO, Cheyenne, WY and Salt Lake City, UT.
Bull’s Eye All five cities will have snowfall totals between a trace and 3 inches by the end of Wednesday.
On Target A majority of the cities will have snowfall totals between a trace and 3 inches by the end of Wednesday.
Complete Miss Any other result.
Have a great week everyone!
