I'm definitely a "glass half full" type of person, it could always be worse... you have to find the positive in any situation, all that good stuff. Although this has certainly been a wet start to fall, it could certainly be worse.
I'll start by saying, YES, the crew at Mythbusters "kind of" squashed this conversion, as it is heavily dependent on temperature but temperature aside it still isn't all that far off.
With that out of the way, many of us have heard that every inch of rain equals roughly 10 inches of snow
The last week of September as we can see on the rain totals map off of the mndnr website, the Twin Cities was just on the line of rain fall totaling nearly 3 inches for the week and this first week of October has brought in just over 2 inches of rain. We can all do basic math right? In less than 2 weeks the Twin Cities received 5 inches of rain or what could have possibly been 50 inches of snow if it were just a little bit colder.
So what's the lesson here? It could always be worse right? Have a Great weekend!!
