If you are a fan of winter, be sure to spend some time outside today.  While we don't exactly have huge piles of snow waiting for you to play in, this just might be the last day for a while where it might "feel" at all like winter. Our high today should end up around 36 degrees, with increasing cloudiness.  Overnight tonight our winds will pickup, with southerly breezes bringing in warmer air just in time for the weekend.  Our overnight temps should remain constant, in the lower 30's.  Saturday we should enjoy a high temp around 60 degrees, with sunny skies and southerly winds at 15-25 mph.  By next week we could be enjoying temperatures approaching 70 degrees, so get ready for a taste of spring!


Our high on Thursday was 37 degrees in Chaska, while the low dipped to 14 degrees.  The peak wind gust was 24 mph from the west, around 6:00 p.m. last night. We received 0.2" of snow.  Current conditions as of 6:00 a.m. this morning include a temperature of 14 degrees, winds from the NW at 1 mph, and a rising barometer (30.56 inches).  The river is 7.09 feet deep.


According to the record books, the warmest temperature ever recorded on this date was 66 degrees (back in 2000), while the lowest temperature was -18 degrees (1951).  In 1918 we received 10.9" of snow, which contained 0.84" of moisture.  Our average temps for March 9 are 39 and 20 degrees.


On this date back in 1918, a snowstorm hit our state and deposited around 11 inches of new snow in the Twin Cities.  In 1999 light and fluffy snow piled up to 16 inches in the metro area.   In 2010, fog was reported in the Chaska area once again.

One year ago today, we saw a high of 36 degrees and a low of 25 degrees.  We received 0.03" of rain and a trace of snow.  Our snow cover had diminished to 10 inches.  The river was 15.83 feet deep.
