This week has seen the first winter precip events of the season along the northern tier of states. Here's the NWS Friday forecast text for Minot, North Dakota:
"Snow before 10am, then rain and snow between 10am and 1pm, then a chance of rain after 1pm. High near 39. East wind 5 to 8 mph becoming northwest in the afternoon. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible."
So with a mix of rain and snow expected, let's predict the 24 hr accumulated precipitation amount (liquid equivalent) for Minot.
Question of the Day: What is the relationship between the depth of the snow and the depth of liquid water if it were melted? What does it depend on?
