NAM looks a little overdone. Showing 6"-12" in western NE and the NWS is going with a general 2"-4" for those areas. Looks like maybe more of a ZR deal in eastern NE.

Both NAM models give us between 1-2" of snow here in Omaha tomorrow afternoon and night. We might squeeze something out of this yet!

Both NAM models also show some freezing rain accumulation of at least .1". The hi res NAM actually spits out amount of over 1" of frozen rain :rolleyes: Could be a little nasty tomorrow evening!

WWA for ice up for E NE.

 

:huh: Headlines in E NE?? Was wondering why nobody was mentioning it? Now I see it got extended back to the SW as well..good signs. I'm gonna get screwed-over in SMI as the 540 thickness stays just north for first little SLP that pops up, then shifts too far south of me for 2nd wave. Perfect screw-job Ma Nature. You can re-pay me next week, I get that funds are low at Christmas!  ;)

 

More black ice in my future it would appear..

we're down to 31 degrees with lt freezing rain and little bit of sleet mixing in. I just came in from running a few errands and the roads I drove on were fine, yet OPD is not responding to non injury accidents anymore, so there must be enough accidents/slick roads somewhere in town. cars, branches, and elevated surfaces all have a thin coat of ice on them.

18Z NAM bringing precip farther NW and slower ejection on 2nd wave. Will see how it plays out on later runs.

A little stronger look to it. If we could get it just a bit stronger and/or have it eject a little slower even Chitown could see a couple flakes.

Yeah, IF it has a clue, I like where mby's sitting - heaviest just to my SE. Nice swath of purples showing up by later Sat pm..

Since the real-deal cold isn't progg'd to come in before this wave, a NW trender is certainly at least even-$$ from this range. It's been warm south of MI, like spring-time warm so it would make some sensible wx sense to me..

Speaking of the delayed cold. Man does that SWS by IWX make them look silly. They bit way too hard on what the over-blown over-eager GFS was advertising. Lesson learned I'm sure. PM afd was still clinging to it, but not the apocalyptic wording like before..

Probably got a quarter inch of snow on the ground here plus freezing drizzle all day and sleet. At least looks a bit more like Christmas!

"If you can’t get #snow with this look in the Ohio Valley I don’t know what will...solid cold source with a perfect gradient (weak SE ridge)...zeroing in on #Christmas Eve/Day here for round #1 next week #winter"

This is a nice map! Looks like my ideas about this winter having the OHV in it's crosshairs might be on track..

It was pretty messy in Omaha this evening. For the first event of the season ice is never ideal with all these crazy drivers around the city. Ice is the absolute worst. There will be a lot of refreeze tonight with a low around 20 so my commute tomorrow morning should be interesting.

same thing here in the DSM area on my commute into work. Cars in the ditch all over the place-- mainly from the -FZDZ with a candy coating of -SN on top. The media like to say that people forget their winter driving skills- I say you either can drive in it or you can't. It's not something you forget how to do....

Still snowing lightly here. Maybe .2" total.....just enough to whiten up everything. Definitely nice to see.

This system was literally a total dud.  Not only did we not get any snow, we didn't even get any measurable precip, period.


season snowfall: 10.8"

 

'16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

 

Average snowfall: ~30"

Same for mby, nada beyond a windsheild speckling that didn't even cross the threshold into official drizzle. Prolly the lightest precip ever seen
