Just put into a winter weather advisory here in Phelps County.  30-50 MPH winds and snow is just beginning, nasty travel just to our west.  I hear reports just west of Phelps County of up to 5 inches of heavy wet snow.  At this point I don't care how long it lasts, just so we can get some precipitation.  Schools  west of here also were closing early.  Report from Cambridge of 3-4 inches of heavy snow and no power.  Small but potent storm.  Arnold had 9 inches according to NWS North Platte.

Heavy snow here, several inches of accumulation. Roads primarily just wet but very good moisture content. Much appreciated by all. Wishing it was an earlier season storm because we wouldn't have the melting that is occurring.

I'm really getting pretty optimistic for at least precip chances here the next couple of weeks. The GFS has been showing 1.5-3.5" of qpf over eastern Nebraska for several runs now including a big snowstorm right around 4/1. Still fantasy land but who knows...

I'm up to 2", estimated, and still snowing. The band of snow that was supposed to fall apart has maintained its strength. I'll take it, Jeremy I'm holding my breath with what the gfs is showing I would gladly take half the amount that it's showing.

06 gfs shows up to 1 foot across Nebraska in the future. If gfs was correct this winter we would have record snowfall totals instead of the meager numbers that have materialized. How many times have we seen maps like this that don't verify? Could this be the one?

I'm not too confident about it.  Seems like the GFS keeps pushing the heavy moisture back into fantasy land.  We all know how accurate it is in fantasy land.  I'm ready for it to warm up and for severe weather season!

Right around the 1-3rd of April is when I think we will see a big storm. At least that's what has been showing up pretty consistently on the GFS. Unfortunately lately it has been mostly rain, when a few days ago almost every run showed snow for Nebraska. Bring on the severe weather though. I'm getting the itch to go out chasing and hopefully won't have to wait til May

That will probably miss Omaha to the East.  Might clip you guys with some light accumulations, but wouldn't expect anything big.

Unexpected snow. Probably close to 3 inches here in holdrege and still snowing heavily. Have been down to 1/2 mile visibility. Not the best night for the prom. Cold enough that some is starting to accumulate on the streets. Think highways are ok for now but tonight might get slick.

Can't really say you're surprised can you?  This year will go down as one of the most pathetic screw jobs this state has ever seen.  Seems we might have to start sacrificing children to mother nature for gosh sakes.

I could leave now and make it up to my parents house near the SD/ND border south of Bismarck just in time for the blizzard. The totals have been upped to 10-15" with 30-45 mph winds..

Dust Storm Warning today for Mccook Nebraska area.  WTF??  I cannot believe Nebraska is slowing but surely turning into the desert southwest.  Extreme drought is creeping back into Southwestern Nebraska, and it won't be long before it makes it further East if this pattern doesn't change.
