MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) - We've now officially made it halfway through meteorological winter, leaving just over two months left before Spring arrives in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
It's been a relatively dry season, with Minnesota seeing more than a 15 inch decrease in snow totals since October. That discrepancy falls to just six inches, however, from the period between Dec. 1 and Jan. 16.
Perhaps the biggest weather story this year is the cold, with a total of 16 days where the temperature never rose above zero.
To boot, Minnesota is about three degrees below average--leading many to hope they've survived the colder half of winter.
