    I'm a little confused. Are they calling 1"-4" a Major Winter Storm? Unfortuntely, even at 1"-4" it would be the ONLY winter storm to date for us.

    OK, I re-read it. 5-10 day outlook is the 1-4 with the possibility of a Major Storm between the 13th and 16th. Good luck with that and I hope some of it comes our way, but I seriously doubt it. The outlook here is in the 60's most days...very crazy.

    If you read the text portion of his forecast you will understand what he is doing. The possibility of the winter storm is still uncertain. The area within the red outline could be impacted if the storm comes together. Let's hope so, but at this point who knows:confused:

    All that we can do is hope. It happened once this year already where forecasters weren't sure if we would get anything and we ended up with over a foot. It sounds like a lot of things have to happen to make a major storm, but at this point I wouldn't mind a couple of inches just to get the dust off the plows and salters:D

    Very true, the early Dec. storm we had wasn't forcasted at all at least in my area. Storm was on Friday and we got 20 inches and wed. night they were saying slight possibility of 1 to 3 inches. Ya never know......

    Dare to dream!!!!!

    I think that map is a little optimistic... Drop the snow amounts by 3 to 4 inches.

    NE MN is only going to get 1 to 3 inches. now at the other end of the Great lakes you may get a lot of snow from lake effect.
