Was fun to watch a local brave the cold Lake Superior waters and surf at Stoney Point on Lake Superior this morning via an Alberta Clipper. The name “Alberta Clipper” is a term we folks in northern Minnesota have given to a weather system which screams down out of Canada (Alberta) to Minnesota normally bringing 3 to 5 inches of snow, cold weather, and high winds. This clipper did not disappoint. The wind gusts around Duluth are about 40 mph, and 150 miles west I have heard reports of 50 to 60 mph gusts. Temperatures are rapidly falling and we will fall below zero tonight (-16C).
