Highs in the 50s and 60s in February in the Twin Cities is like seeing a dog walk on its hind legs (S/O Mean Girls), so soak up the record-setting warm temperatures while they last.
"It's a phenomenal event with both predicting QPF values from 1 to 2 inches across our entire area. A simple 10 to 1 snow ratio tells you how much snow could fall. A trend noted with this storm is that is does not involve phasing as several other of our failed snow events did. This one is simply a wave now west of the Aleutians Islands, reaching the west coast by mid week and then pushing eastward from there. Needless to say 100 pops are already in the forecast for Friday from FB."
Whatever that means. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Kidding. Here's what that means: a Quantitative Precipitation Forecast coupled with a rain-to-snow conversion rate of 1" of rain equal to 10" of snow means we're on par to get up to 20 inches of snow next weekend.
