Minneapolis snow

All posts tagged Minneapolis snow

Updated 11/12 -I’ve been waiting for some new snow stats to come in from the storm and they are starting to. We doubled the 9 cities that had measurable snowfall and now have 18 cities that are reporting snow. It looks like Minneapolis, Minnesota may be the winner of this round and I think they are going to have more snow to add to their totals by the end of the day. Minneapolis, Minnesota jumped into second place on the snow mountain and are only 0.4 inches away from moving to the top with Anchorage.

Billings, Montana who I thought would be the first to strike for the 2014-2015 snow season is on the mountain now reporting 2 inches of snowfall. They moved up to the 3rd slot on the snow mountain and remember they were pretty competitive last season. If anything changes come the next update from the National Weather Service I’ll try to get another update in later. Have an awesome day all ;)


I’ve been reading around and it looks like winter storm Astro is going to be a game changer when it come to the early start of the Golden Snow Globe contest. Anchorage, Alaska has been holding on to the snow lead for awhile this season. I think a good bet will be that that will be dropping down at least a few spots.

It’s looking good right now according to several weather sites including The National Weather Service which is where we get our official snow stats from. South Dakota, Minnesota, Northern Wisconsin and Michigan are looking good as of the last check. This storm most like will be hanging to the North the more it pushes to the East. Remember, I’m no expert and kind of just bluff my way through these posts so if your city is in the storm Astro warning and watch areas check with the pros like the National Weather Service or your local weather folks ;)

I was going to do a full update but ended up just doing a quick top 25 update because there was only one change in the top 25 snowiest cities which was Ann Arbor, Michigan which jumped a few spots up on the snow mountain. I will be doing updates the next couple of days as snow storm Astro hits all of the cities. Right now I’m reading that the cities that get affected could/should be seeing anywhere for 1-3 inches all the way up to 12-18 inches of snowfall from storm Astro.

Stay Safe All and as Always, See Snow, Drive Slow ;)

Top 10 Updated 12/13 2 AM – Just a heads up that I took a fast look at some of the cities and not all of them. Madison, Wisconsin broke into the top 10 as of now but again that’s not checking all of the cities. I’ll see if I can find a couple of hours tomorrow to get a full update in again.

If you haven’t heard yet several cities in Minnesota have been getting pounded with snow the last day or two. It looks like Minneapolis, Minnesota is picking a snowball fight with the leader of the national snow contest Syracuse, New York. There won’t be any battles happening on the football field between Minnesota and New York in Minneapolis though for the fact that the Metrodome’s roof collapsed. Kind of ironic I think as Minnesota is challenging a New York team in the snow race and were suppose to play the New York Giants today :) but it was canceled because of the snow.

It should get pretty close when all the snow is reported from Minneapolis. Right now the stats just reflect what has fallen since yesterday. It’s raining in the Syracuse area so they won’t be adding any snow stats most likely until Monday or Tuesday trying to grab some from the same storm that sledded Minneapolis back toward the top. All of the top 10 managed to hold on but there was quite a bit of shuffling this last update.

We were finally able to get a full update in so all of the cities should be up to date with the latest NOAA stats. I’ll try to get another top 10 update in later tonight to see if Minneapolis was able to take down Syracuse.

Here are a few cities that stood out this last update because of how far the records went back:

Minneapolis, MN set a date record with 16.3 inches of snow breaking the old record of 5.2 inches set in 1909

Green Bay, WI set a record with 6.5 inches breaking the old snow record of 5.2 set in 1893

Sioux Falls, SD had 7.6 inches of snow breaking the old record of 5.0 that dated back to 1903.

Have a Great Day All!!!
