Hubbard County snowfall totals: Which band were you under?
PARK RAPIDS - Hubbard County snowfall totals from the weekend storm varied widely - and wildly.
While much of the region reported 4 to 6 inches of new snowfall, some portions of the county north and west of Park Rapids reported an estimated 8.5 to 10 inches of snowfall to the National Weather Service.
"Looking at the map, it was a hit-and-miss event," said NWS meteorologist Peter Rogers. "Some areas did pick up more than other areas relatively nearby. It wasn't the most uniform snowfall in terms of everybody getting the same. Yes, some areas out in your neck of the woods did get quite a bit."
Snowfall totals have a lot to do with bands. "These were big long bands," Rogers said. "If that particular band happens to go over your site you're more likely to get higher snowfall amounts in that particular area than an area that doesn't have a band go over it and that just happens to be with the atmospheric conditions associated with it at the time."
The cold weather will moderate throughout today, Rogers said. "This (morning) should be the bottom of this particular event."
Cold and snows will persist throughout the winter.
"It doesn't look like we'll be out of this until June at the rate we're going," Rogers said.
