    Northern California received a deluge of rain over the weekend, the Central Coast saw record-breaking rainfall Monday and other parts of the state saw a trickle. Los Angeles County didn’t get anything from the Northern California storm system. L.A. County, like most of Southern California, remained dry Tuesday and it won’t get any rain next week, when temperatures will start to climb, according to the National Weather Service. Starting Wednesday, clear skies will make way for a warming trend that will see temperatures reach the low 80s in L.A. County, and heading into the weekend, they could hit the 90s. Ventura County recorded some light showers Tuesday morning that could make their way to L.A. County, but it’s not expected to bring much rain, according to meteorologists. “It’s no drought buster here,” said Eric Boldt, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service office in Oxnard.

    A storm system from Northern California will continue to bring rain to parts of Southern California on Monday, but Los Angeles is likely to remain dry, forecasters said. Showers have been dampening parts of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties since Sunday. In Santa Barbara County, Sudden Peak received a total of 1.58 inches of rain and Rancho San Julian a total of 1.55 inches. In San Luis Obispo County, Oceano received 1.58 inches and Arroyo Grande received 1.53 inches. Rain is likely to continue falling over the same cities, said David Sweet, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. A slow-moving, frontal system is essentially stalled over the area, sustaining moisture levels and leading to rainfall. “We are expecting it to sit there all day and not really move,” Sweet said, adding that it will eventually weaken and dissipate. It is not expected to move farther east than Santa Barbara.

    DULUTH, Minn. (WCCO) — It’s official, there’s a whole lot more shade falling over Duluth than in other parts of the world. That’s because the new Guinness Book of World Records’ newly certified “tallest family in the world” lives there. (Actually, they live in Esko, but trust us, the shadows are long.) The Trapp family was just given the title of world’s tallest family, and at an average height of 6 feet, 8 inches tall, who’s going to argue against the family of five’s claim? The most diminutive of the quintet, mother Kristine, still stands at a robust 6 feet, 3 inches tall. “I love saying I’m the shortest person in the world’s tallest family,” she said. From there, the remaining family members’ heights are: Scott Trapp, father: 6 feet, 8 inches Savanna Trapp, daughter: 6 feet, 8.1 inches Molly Steede, daughter: 6 feet, 6 inches Adam Trapp, son: 7 feet, 3 inches According to Guinness, Savanna Trapp has been recruited by UCLA to play — give you one guess — Division I basketball.

    By The Associated Press A late winter storm blasted the northeastern United States on Saturday with high winds and snow that could pile up to a foot high, sending temperatures plummeting and making travel hazardous after first taking aim at the Deep South. The National Weather Service said 7 to 12 inches (18 to 30 centimeters) could be expected in northern areas of Pennsylvania and New York with winds gusting as high as 45 mph (72 kph). Philadelphia residents, while expecting only a few inches of snow, were warned that blizzard-like conditions were possible at one point, and later a flash freeze was possible with wet surfaces rapidly becoming icy due to plummeting temperatures. Gale warnings were in effect in coastal New Jersey and Delaware areas, with gusts of 40 to 50 mph (65 kph to 95 kph) possible and forecasters warning of tree damage and resulting power outages as well as rough boating conditions. A wind advisory was in effect for other areas. Meteorologist Andrew Orrison of the weather service office in College Park, Maryland, said moderate to heavy...
    A late winter storm dropped snow that could pile up over a foot high and drew strong winds to the northeastern United States on Saturday after the system brought wintry conditions to the Deep South. The National Weather Service said 7 to 12 inches (18 to 30 centimeters) could be expected in northern areas of Pennsylvania and New York with winds gusting as high as 45 mph (72 kph).

    A late-winter storm combining rivers of moisture and frigid temperatures is expected to dump snow from the Deep South to the Canadian border over the weekend, with more than 20 million Americans under a winter weather alert as of Friday evening. Snowfall totals range from about one to three inches in northern parts of Alabama and Mississippi to about 13 inches in northern Maine. The storm could cause travel problems and power outages across a wide part of the Eastern United States from late Friday through early next week. The storm is first passing through the central US, threatening parts of the central Gulf Coast, Georgia, the Florida Panhandle and the Carolinas with severe thunderstorms from Friday night into Saturday, CNN reports. The system is referred to by some as an ominous-sounding 'bomb cyclone,' which forms when a storm decreases in pressure by 24 millibars in under 24 hours. Several school districts from Kansas to Pennsylvania have announced they're shutting down ahead of the late-winter storm.  More than 500 fights within the US are already cancelled for Friday and 6,404 are reporting...
    Stay Informed: WCCO Weather App | Live Radars | School Closings & Delays | More MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After a warm start to the work week, temperatures will slide back to near zero mid-week. WCCO Meteorologist Lisa Meadows says it will reach 29 degrees in the Twin Cities Monday, and parts further west will even reach into the low 30s. Tuesday’s high temp will be 36 in the metro. The next weather system is a clipper that will drop from the northeast from Canada into Minnesota early Tuesday morning. Accumulating snow is expected throughout northern Minnesota, but it will sharply cut off north of the Interstate 94 corridor. Central Minnesota will be in the storm’s sweet spot, with chances for both snow and freezing rain. The system will hinder both the Tuesday morning and evening commutes in northern and western Minnesota. And as it exits the state late Tuesday evening, it will bring strong winds, blowing snow and colder temperatures in its wake. (credit: CBS) Meadows says snow totals will likely be the highest in the Arrowhead, which could...
    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (CBS13/AP) — Wind, rain and snow were forecast to return to Northern California on Monday, forecasters said.

    A fresh, modest coat of snow is expected to fall over the Sierra Nevada to start the week, while the Bay Area could see some light showers amid mostly overcast skies in the coming days. The storm system moving over Northern California is expected to complicate travel along some roadways, particularly Interstate 5 and a few mountain passes along the northern Sierra. Even so, snow totals should be nowhere near as high as from a series of late December storms that buried the mountains in record-setting fashion. Six to 8 inches of snow is expected to fall over Donner Pass from late Sunday through Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. Totals should be less to the south, with only an inch or two expected over Echo Pass. Most of the snow is expected to fall north of Interstate 80, with Lassen Park set to receive 24 to 30 inches of snow, while Interstate 5 near Dunsmuir and the city of Mt. Shasta could see 8 to 12 inches of snow. “It’s pretty run-of-the-mill storm,” said Cory Mueller, a National...

    A powerful storm began walloping Northern California on Sunday, bringing up to 10 feet of snow at higher elevations before moving south Monday and Tuesday. Forecasters said the storm in Southern California will be “significant,” with as much as 3 inches of rain in coastal areas and up to 5 inches in the foothills and mountains. “We’re expecting some heavier rain after midnight Monday for Los Angeles and going into Tuesday morning,” said Mike Wofford, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. One to 3 feet of snow is expected in the mountains above 7,000 feet, with a couple of inches possible as low as 4,500 feet. “Ski resorts will do well,” Wofford said. The storm will usher in lower temperatures, with highs in the 50s on Monday and Tuesday and lows plummeting into the 30s Tuesday night in the mountains and parts of the San Fernando Valley.

However, temperatures will fall into the single digits by Monday morning, resulting in “the worst commute of the season so far.” Snowfall in northern Minnesota will lead to moderate to major travel impacts, Augustyniak said.   More On WCCO.com:...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s been a slow start to winter so far, but that’s about to change, as a storm system is on the way which could bring over 6 inches of snow for northern Minnesota residents. The storm will move into the state around 5 p.m., hitting west-central Minnesota first. The Twin Cities could see some light snow around 8 p.m., but the system will stay north of Interstate 94. In the metro, a coating to two inches of snow is possible in the next 24 hours. Some light slush and snow accumulate overnight, but roads will remain mostly dry on Saturday. However, 6-8 inches of snow is likely for northern Minnesota, especially in Bemidji and Grand Rapids.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — After some light precipitation overnight, some more snow events are on track to impact Minnesota and Wisconsin into next week. The WCCO Weather Team reports that Friday morning will be quiet and mild, with some wet roads after some snow fell overnight. A few flurries will continue in spots until noon. During the weekend, there are chances of snow Saturday evening into Sunday evening, which will affect mostly northern Minnesota. A winter storm watch has been issued for the northern region, where the greatest chance for more than six inches of snow is possible. Then, more snow could occur Sunday night into Monday.

    Mammoth Mountain is kicking off its season Oct. 29 — two weeks ahead of schedule — following forecasts of an unusually early storm that could dump up to 2 feet of snow on the popular ski and snowboard destination by early next week. “We can’t wait to let it rip on snow,” the mountain resort wrote in a Facebook post announcing the new season opening day. The slopes were initially set to open Nov. 13. A slate of activities are planned for Halloween weekend, including a countdown to the winter season and a hard rock-themed costume contest. Forecasters with the National Weather Service say snow could begin accumulating by Sunday afternoon on the east side of the Sierra Nevada, where Mammoth rises amid the peaks. By the time the storm rolls out Tuesday evening, mountains in the area could get 1 to 2 feet of fresh powder, said Heather Richards, a meteorologist with the weather service’s Reno station. The amount of snow on the mountaintops will vary, “but certainly it is in the cards for...
    Several strong storms are rushing toward Central and Northern California, bringing much-needed rain to drought-stricken areas beginning Thursday night, but also bearing fears of flooding in fresh fire scars. A large trough of low pressure hovering off the coast of the Pacific Northwest is driving repeated rounds of precipitation in the northern part of California and ushering in the first major storm of the season, National Weather Service forecasters said. What’s known as an “atmospheric river” is pumping continuous moisture over the region, said Ryan Kittell, a meteorologist with the weather service’s Oxnard station. On Thursday morning, scattered showers were reported across Central and Northern California, and more storms are moving in. A storm system arriving in the evening and lasting into Friday is expected to be “significant,” said Emily Heller, with the weather service’s Sacramento station. The northern Sierra Nevada had already received about 10 inches of snow by the beginning of the week, and 1 to 2 feet more might be dumped in the region early next week, Heller said. Weather officials said...
    A series of three storms will surge in off the Pacific Ocean this week, starting late Tuesday night and projected to bring the most rain in nine months to drought-stricken Northern California and the Bay Area, forecasters said Tuesday, a promising start to winter after two years marked by record wildfires and dry conditions. Two of those storms look like atmospheric rivers — narrow, moisture-rich storms that play a critical role in the state’s water supply. The first, which was set to arrive late Tuesday night and continue in the Bay Area into Wednesday morning, is likely to be a moderate storm. But another shaping up for Sunday night was upgraded to a category 5 on Tuesday, the highest in a 5-level scale. “On average Northern California might get 1 or 2 of those a year,” said Marty Ralph, director of the Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes at UC San Diego. “We are looking at prolonged rain, and some heavy rain.” The National Weather Service said that the storm Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, combined with some lighter...
    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Officials with the PGA Tour announced Sunday that the final round of The Northern Trust at Liberty National Golf Club in Jersey City, New Jersey, will be played without spectators on the course due to inclement weather related to tropical storm Henri.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s dry in the Twin Cities, but it’s even worse the further north you go. Many streams and rivers are now hitting a critical stage. There is a part of the Minnesota River in Chaska that would normally be several feet under water, but the river continues to narrow as the dry spell continues. READ MORE: Judge Promises Ruling On Guns Before Minnesota State Fair Begins “A lot of rivers in western and northern Minnesota have entered “low flow,” which is usually less than 10% of their average or normal flow,” said Brent Hewett, forecaster for the National Weather Service.

According to the National Weather Service it would take 15 inches of rain over the next 3 months to end the drought in the Twin Cities. But that’s highly unlikely considering that from September through March we usually get about 10 to 14 inches of precipitation...

    BOSTON (CBS) – The trend is our friend, especially if you don’t want snow Friday. Over the last 24 hours, weather models have been fairly aggressively trending downward with snowfall amounts here in southern New England. This doesn’t come as a great surprise given all the factors that needed to line up perfectly for a significant snow accumulation to occur. READ MORE: IRS Tax Filing Deadline To Be Pushed Back To May 17 Essentially, our area is on the very northern fringe of this storm system. In order for us to receive a meaningful and impactful accumulation, we need for the colder air to come in fast enough while still maintaining the intensity of the precipitation on the very northern fringes of the storm. In a sense, we have to “thread the needle” just right with regards to timing and track, fairly typical of a mid-to-late March snow threat. The latest data appears to show a much weaker northern extent to the system. The severe weather to the south is actually drawing away the needed energy to maintain the intensity...

    After a particularly wet week, Californians shouldn’t hang up their snow shovels and raincoats just yet. Those in Southern California should expect 1 to 8 inches of snow to fall in the mountainous areas of Ventura and Los Angeles counties between late Tuesday and Wednesday night, said Kathy Hoxsie, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Oxnard. Elsewhere in Los Angeles County, one-quarter to one-half of an inch of rain is forecast to fall, with 3/4 inches expected in the foothills, Hoxsie said. This comes after 18 to 24 inches of snow fell at Mt. Baldy — whose levels mirror those of the San Gabriel Mountains — between Jan. 26 and 29, Hoxsie said, helping make up for what has been a particularly dry winter. Mt. Wilson saw 7 inches of snow at 5,700 feet. Northern California saw even more snow: between 4 and 7 feet in the Sierra Nevada, said Idamis Del Valle, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento. The winter storm washed out a portion of Highway 1 along Big Sur...

    An early-season snowstorm dumped a record-breaking amount of snow across Minnesota on Tuesday, knocking out power to thousands and leading to hundreds of accidents. The National Weather Service (NWS) forecast office for the Twin Cities said that 7.9 inches of snow fell at Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport, which broke a previous daily record of three inches set back on Oct. 20, 1916. “We had record-breaking snow, snow totals here across the Northern Rockies, the Northern Plains, the Upper Midwest, Minnesota receiving over 8 inches of snow and another batch of snow is on the way,” Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean said on “Fox & Friends.” The storm was also the second-largest October snowstorm on record.
