March 1, 2006
It looks as though the Winter of 2005-2006 could be classified as a late-bloomer.
We got off to a mild and (relatively) snow less start but with the forecast currently posted by the National Weather Service we may continue to make up for our lack-luster winter performance.
The Lake Vermilion area may receive 10 inches of fresh snow by this time tomorrow.
The Duluth office of the NWS shows us how they measure snow fall and depth. They also offer classes for area residents who may be interested in assisting the NWS in monitoring severe weather events. The “Skywarn Classes” are part of the National Weather Service’s warning program designed to establish a network of volunteers trained in the detection and reporting of life-threatening storms.
