Not too sure. I lived in Calgary as a kid but you get so many snowfalls that you don't remember when the first one usually is, unless it's insanely early like August or September.

I'd take a guess around sometime in October. Mid-late October in the south probably?

Heaters on? How would you like to be waking up to these wind chills in August? Another Upper Low in the upper Mid West.



NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TWIN CITIES/CHANHASSEN MN
256 AM CDT SUN AUG 23 2015

.SHORT TERM...(TODAY AND TONIGHT)
ISSUED AT 256 AM CDT SUN AUG 23 2015

THE SECOND ANOMALOUSLY STRONG SYSTEM OF THE WEEK HAS PUSHED A COLD
FRONT THROUGH THE UPPER MISSISSIPPI OVERNIGHT BRINGING IN DEW POINTS
20 TO 25 DEGREES COOLER FROM YESTERDAY EVENING. AN IMPRESSIVE UPPER
LOW SEEN ON WATER VAPOR IMAGERY CENTERED OVER CENTRAL MN WILL TRACK
EAST THIS MORNING. A FEW SHOWERS ON THE BACKSIDE OF THIS LOW WILL
BRUSH PORTIONS OF WESTERN AND CENTRAL MN EARLY THIS MORNING...NONE
OF WHICH WILL BE OF ANY SIGNIFICANCE. CLOUDS WILL OVERSPREAD THE
REST OF THE AREA FOR A TIME...BEFORE THE UPPER LOW LIFTS NORTHEAST
AND MUCH DRIER MID LEVEL AIR ROTATES IN FROM THE NORTHWEST. THE
MAJORITY OF THE AREA WILL HAVE SUNNY SKIES BY AFTERNOON BUT CYCLONIC
FLOW LINGERING OVER NORTHERN AND CENTRAL WI MAY SPARK A FEW ISOLATED
SHOWERS INTO THE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING...WHICH COULD DRIFT
OVER RUSK COUNTY. THE MOST IMPACTFUL SENSIBLE WEATHER ELEMENT TODAY
WILL BE THE WIND. A GOOD PRESSURE GRADIENT WILL REMAIN IN PLACE
THROUGH EARLY EVENING AND STEEP LOW LEVEL LAPSE RATES WILL ALLOW MID
20 TO LOW 30 KNOT WIND GUSTS TO MIX DOWN TO THE SURFACE.

SURFACE RIDGING WILL ARRIVE TONIGHT AND WHILE WINDS WILL EASE...THEY
ARE NOT EXPECTED TO DECOUPLE. THEREFORE...THINK THE AREA WILL BE
SPARED FROM RECORD OR NEAR RECORD TEMPERATURES IN THE UPPER
30S/LOWER 40S TONIGHT...BUT IT WILL STILL BE QUITE COOL FOR LATE
AUGUST.

GREarth. First thing I open each morning.

Quick look to get an idea how things are "flowing" with that big storm near Lake Superior.

Colors are the temps at 10,000. Are there any spots under where that moisture is being shown on radar above 9000'? It would be snow falling under the dark blues.

The arrows are the direction of the flow itself so you can see the spin of the storm.

Next time I post the 500mb maps without the arrows(winds) get an idea how it flows without seeing the wind. (follow the gaps of the lines from left to right, that's where the Upper level winds are from)
