More Snow on the Radar

Posted by Kirk
A little before lunch a cold front blew though and stripped all the leaves on the trees. We're in this beautiful sunny day right now during lunch but that's because we're sitting right in the middle of the low pressure system. You can see it on the regional radar. Hurricanes are essentially just powerful low pressure systems so I like to think of this as a weak land hurricane and we're in a really big eye of the storm now. All seems quiet but look at the sleet (purple) and snow (blue) over on the Dakota-Minnesota border! That is the other side of the low pressure system.
