New Clues About What To Expect In Spring

March 26, 2014, 5:32 PM by Brian Karstens

New Clues About What To Expect In Spring

With April now less than a week away, more clues about the extended spring forecast are emerging.

There's no question most people in KELOLAND are ready for "normal" spring weather.  But the road toward warmer weather is usually filled with plenty of twists, turns and bumps. 

One factor still looming over us in the impressive snow cover and thick ice over north Minnesota into the Great Lakes region and portions of southern Canada.  So far, the ice and snow has been slow to melt, meaning cold fronts from the north will still have plenty of ammunition to bring spells of below normal temperatures to KELOLAND. 

Clues about our rain and snow chances are a bit more challenging. 

During the course of the winter, KELOLAND experienced a predominant northwest flow of air with numerous cold fronts from December through February.  Assuming the parade of fronts will continue for at least the first portion of spring, our chances of more measurable moisture will go up.  Wednesday night and Thursday's forecast is a great example.

The rain Wednesday night could develop into as much as .25" to .50" across southeast KELOLAND, mainly southeast of Sioux Falls.   A warmer atmosphere can hold more water now, so this same scenario just a few weeks ago may have yielded very little moisture.  These are patterns worth watching because they can develop into wetter than normal springs in the Upper Midwest.
