September 15 marks the beginning of the potential snow season in Minnesota. It's true, but you don't have to worry about any snowflakes falling any time soon. In fact, it's warm and humid outside, which will set the stage for a relatively active week of weather.
"Some models suggest that before the month ends, we get some snow – light snow – mixing in with rain in parts of northern Minnesota," says climatologist Kenny Blumenfeld in this week's episode of the Way Over Our Heads podcast.
Don't fret, though. Blumenfeld notes that other computer models suggest summer will hang on through the end of the month.
And remember that Farmer's Almanac prediction for a "parade of snowstorms" for Minnesota this winter? Blumenfeld says it's a bunch of bologna, although it makes for some fun reading.
The weather and climate podcast also focuses on last week's heavy rains and severe weather that included a trio of unusual tornadoes in Sioux Falls.
