Our snow melt continues

Cloudy skies will rule the day, with scattered showers and a high near 45 degrees. We shouldn't hear any thunder today, and any precipitation we receive should be lighter than yesterday's rain, but our snow piles will continue to retreat under the onslaught of our early spring of 2010. This weekend we may get the chance to enjoy a little sunshine, which would be nice after the week we've just been through!

Our weather statistics include a high yesterday of 44 degrees, and a low last night of 38 (average for today = 41 and 21). We received 0.56" of rain over the past 24 hours. Officially, our snow total is now listed as a "trace" (which means that over half of the ground is no longer covered with snow), although I still have some pretty big piles along the driveway, sidewalk, and drifted areas. The records for today include a high and low temp of 70 (set in 1990) and -15 (from 1956), while our precipitation records were both set back in 1899 (1.10" of precipitation, that came from 11.0" of snow). The Minnesota River is sitting at 11.54 feet as of 4:00 this morning, up over 2 feet in the past 24 hours.

So far all local roads are open, but stay tuned....
