More rain = less snow

Tuesday's warm and wet weather continues, with rain showers and a high near 42 degrees expected for Wednesday. We may see our first "50" of the year by this yet another sure sign of the waning of winter. The long range forecast is calling for above-average temperatures for the next week or so, as March continues to act like a lamb. Will this trend continue? Stay tuned...

Our high on Tuesday was 38 degrees, and the temps remained fairly steady overnight. We received 0.18" of rain in Chaska over the past 24 hours, reducing our snowpack by another 2 inches. The records for today include a high and low temp of 54 (1977) and -3 degrees (1984), and 0.59" of precipitation (way back in 1878). The average high and low temperatures for today are 40 and 20 degrees, respectively. The sun will rise this morning at 6:36 a.m. and it will set this evening at 6:14 p.m.. The Minnesota River is continuing its slow rise, sitting at 8.50 feet as of this morning.
