Greetings and welcome!
It was great seeing so many of my snowmobiling friends Friday night at Rapids. Thank you all very much for your support and thank yous!
Based on how busy it was and the traffic past the house Saturday this had to be the busiest snowmobiling weekend of the year.
I’ve been in hibernation since Saturday so I can’t tell you what the trails look like. What I can tell you is that we have another big storm coming for tomorrow.
This one has gone back and forth on where the rain/snow line will set up. For the past few forecasts and model runs it will be just a little to the south of us, putting us just into the heavy snow band.
Early model runs had this storm easily the strongest storm of the season with a central pressure of 976MB. It is an apples to oranges comparison, but that is the central pressure that you might see in a strong Cat 1 or weak Cat 2 hurricane. The models have backed off of that quite a bit and this is more typical of what we would see in a normal winter storm (986-990MB).
If it all works out well we will likely see about 6″ of wet heavy snow. That could go higher if the upper air temperatures cool off a little, or could be less if the rain/snow line moves north.
At any rate we are under a winter storm watch. We will not know how it ends until tomorrow night.
I hope that a lot of people got a lot of miles in this weekend. From what I saw from friends on Facebook that was very much the case.
Have a good Sunday and thank you for visiting!
