Snow Deficit Mounting
ST. CLOUD - There's a mention of snow in the forecast tonight (Tuesday) and tomorrow, but it probably won't put much of a dent in our snow deficit for the winter.
The National Weather Service says we've had just 6.7 inches of snow so far this season, that's nearly 16 inches below our average total. If this were a normal year, we would have have nearly 23 inches of snow by now.
Looking out at our 10-day forecast, there is that 40% chance of light snow tonight and tomorrow, and flurries are in the forecast for Saturday. But right now our best chance for measurable snow is next Wednesday, when there's a 60% chance for snow.
