Will Duluth / Superior See The First Snowfall In September?
It is by far the most dreaded word you can say in the Northland: snow! We see a lot of it each year and it usually stings just a bit more when we hear it for the first time during a sunny, warm summer.
Now that we are officially in August, we can't rule out the possibility of snow in the near future. Like I said, this is Northern Minnesota after all.
The Old Farmer's Almanac has ruled out the possibility of snow in August, which isn't a huge shock. That got me thinking - what about September? That is when the weather really starts to take a turn.
According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, we should be in the clear for snow in September as of now. They laid out what they are expecting for the month and the word snow is nowhere in sight!
Of course, you have to take their predictions with a grain of salt. Some believe in their methods and others do not. They do long-term forecasting by region using their own methods. Whether you believe in their forecasting or not, it is a relief that snow doesn't seem to be in the forecast for right now.
Last year around this time, the Old Farmer's Almanac DID predict snow so even though 2020 has been a very strange ride, it looks like we have one thing to celebrate. Another reason to celebrate? Their predictions for this month look pretty mild, including periods of cool conditions and thunderstorm activity at times.
