Cold and clear on Tuesday. Temp dropping down to the mid teens. Cold weather setting of the ground and making good ice on the smaller ponds, lakes and sloughs. Looks like even cooler weather to move in middle of the week with a chance of light snow. No big system snow on the current forecast but things can change quickly and with frozen ground, it won’t take much snow to have skiing.
Cold front moving through last night, bringing colder temps and another dusting of snow. Looks to warm up just a bit on Sunday before cooling down again and more chances of snow. Getting closer and the trails are ready for more snow!!
Light rain/mist on Thursday with temps in the lower 30’s. Chance of rain later today before changing over to all snow with up to 2″ possible by the weekend’s end. The record rainfall/precipitation for the past two months continues!! All in all the trails are looking great and ready for the snow to fly!!
Crisp and cool on Tuesday. Temps dropping down to the upper teens the past few nights setting up some good ice on the local ponds and even freezing over the entire Island Lake. Clear skies allowing the sun to shine on these shorter days which is always nice to see. A dusting of snow remains on the trails. Chance of some light snow later today and tonight and rain/snow mix end of the week. Good to have the cold temps to set up frost in the ground, making a good surface for the snow to fall on. Ground freezing easily with above average rainfall this Autumn.
Dusting of snow last night as a cold front pushed its way through, dropping temps down in to the 20’s. With a stiff breeze from the northwest, the air has a bite to it for sure. Cold temps good for cooling down the ground to freeze and setting up ice on the ponds and sloughs. Getting closer to winter!!
