A potent case of the Monday blahs

* .70-1.00" of rain reported at MSP Sunday, high of only 50 degrees (12 degrees cooler than average).
* If you're keeping score 45" of snow has fallen during the winter season of '08-09, about 10" less than average, continuing a trend we've seen much of the last 20 years.
* Statistical odds of another "plowable" snowfall of 2"+? Probably less than 1 in 10.
* Wet snow reported over far northern MN Sunday, from near Crookston to International Falls.
* Flash Flood Watch posted for extreme southeastern MN, including Rochester and Winona area, through the morning hours today.
* Much wetter pattern for the Twin Cities (and all of Minnesota) the next 1-2 weeks.
* Nicest day in sight: Tuesday, sunshine, near 60.
* More rain/T-storms Wednesday/Thursday.
* Odds favor better weather for next weekend, although a shower/T-shower can't be ruled out by late in the day Sunday.
