Pattern Shift Coming

Our weather pattern will take a distinct turn from near normal to much colder and snowier again for a period that could last several weeks at the very least. You can easily see that pattern shift start to occur next weekend:

Since the snowfall season began, Hopkins Airport has seen 24.3″ of total snowfall. As of January 7th, that’s 2.2″ above normal. Without much snowfall between now and next weekend, we will likely go a little below the normal total before ramping that right back up into above normal territory for the second half of January.

Here’s an animation of the USA’s total accumulated snowfall from October 1, 2020 to January 7, 2021.
