    Why is Earl playing with his color markers - it's April

    I was kind of surprised when this popped up. What is going on?

    I have always assumed that Earls snow forecast is IF it all come as snow. This of course will be rain.

    Earls rain forecast is available.

    God thing it's spring. Winter storm warning for up to a quarter inch of ice tonight/tomorrow, then 3-7 inches of snow Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

    His forecast is a snow forecast only, not if all the rain came as snow. For instance, Waterloo got 1.25 inches of rain today, which would have been over a foot of snow, had it all come as snow, which isn't what that page says.

    Sounds like parts of SD and Minnesota are expecting up to a foot of snow.
