Take your guess in the annual snowmelt contest

Winter seemed to hang on forever last year.

Temperatures did not turn very Spring-like until the last week of April. This led to the record latest snow melt off of Rib Mountain – not disappearing until June 30th!

This year we had one of the coldest and snowiest winters on record. Does this mean the Rib Mountain snow melt will be even later than last year? A lot depends upon whether the weather warms up above normal.

Many people speculate that our very cold winter will be followed by a hot Summer. If so, the snow could melt earlier than last year. What is your prediction.
