Hurricane Sandy

For those of you that have kept up with my posts, you know that I am blogging to you from Maryland. It is now becoming more likely that Hurricane Sandy will be making a bee line strait for us. Attm the National Hurricane Center is putting Sandy’s landfall right around Dover Delaware, bringing it North West directly over me. I plan to post updates as long as possible, so stay tuned!

Snow totals

Snow Totals From Early Season Snow Event

An early season snow event produced significant snow amounts for northeast North Dakota into northwest Minnesota for early October.  The heaviest snow fell in Roseau county where around a foot of heavy wet snow has been reported as of 3 pm Thursday October 4.  This heavy wet snow has also produced numerous power outages across this area. 

These snow amounts appear to be record amounts for this early in the season for many areas.  The previous record snowfall for October 4 or earlier at the NWS in Grand Forks was 2 inches on October 2, 1950.  The NWS at Grand Forks reported 3.5 inches of snow with this storm on October 4, 2012. While records from around the area indicate that the October 2, 1950 storm produced about 2-5 inches around the region with localized higher amounts, with Leeds, ND receiving 7.0 inches on October 2, 1950, and Hallock 4.5 inches.
