Still getting moderate to heavy snow falling here. So far not all that much wind and at this time flake size is still good. But the temperature is still at 20° It is when the surface temperature gets down in the low teens and below that flake size can become very small. At this time the new snow is at 6.2” and it is still snowing.  Some people may not realize that lake snow is for the most part a light fluffy snow and even a foot or more is east to shovel  and or snow blow. And most cars can drive thru 6 to 8 inches with out much problems and most 4 X4 and AWD can do over a foot or more with out issues. As for stopping and seeing with low visibilities well that is another matter.  As time warrents I will drop a post as to snow amounts.  At this time the snow has stopped.

Merry Christmas.

 

Climatology for today December 25th      At Grand Rapids, MI

 

The average H/L is 32/21°

The record high is 65° in 1982 when there were thunderstorms. The coldest high is 10° in 1983

The record low is -3° in 1983 the warmest minimum is 43° in 1982 All these record are safe.

The most snow fall is 7.0” in 1990 (The snow fall at GRR before midnight was 1.5”) this record should be safe depending on snow fall at the airport.

The most snow on the ground is 22” in 1951

Last year the H/L was 35/33 there was 0.12” of rain and 5” of snow on the ground.

Merry Christmas everyone. Been gone for awhile, changing some priorities in my life. Have looked in from time to time. My area of Central Nebraska got an average of around 5 inches from Saturday-Sunday system. GFS looks nice, but local forecasts say 1-2 inches tops. Have a tremendous holiday season.

It really has and it couldn't have been so well-timed.  Today's snow reminded me of Dec '13 Christmas Day event when it snowed about 2" of powder.  I'm just glad we got enough to cover up the grass!  I received about 1.5" (ish)...how about you?  Did that lake enhanced band "thump" some snow in the city?

 

Edit: ORD officially picked up 1.8"

got  1.8 over here

On my ridge back home from Christmas Eve Mass, I was struck by the beauty of the blanket of freshly fallen snow on top of the Christmas lights.  The cold temps and flurries in the air make it feel very festive out there tonight.  Can't tell you enough how much I miss this type of weather!  It's been snowing all day long and finally winding down.  This was certainly a treat from nature.

I guess it shows how needy we have become to be so appreciative of a couple inches of snow

Have had a couple short-duration whiteout/bliz conditions so far where vis drops to <500 ft and the winds howl ripping snow off my tall White Pine in the back yard in big flying clumps. Pretty intense but quick, thus only a few tenths more since I shoveled about 11:30

Ofc, I've seen this LES film annually for 15 yrs here in Marshall. The winds start off with an unfavorable WSW flow taking all the good streamers north of me, then slowly back around to west, finally finishing NW flow. Best results is when that occurs after dark as shown on this map. Often most of my forecasted amount falls during the tail-end of the event or even a bit after it's officially "over", lol

All the snow has come via north stream dominant cold flow pattern and SEMI does best when it's a very cold pattern. If we ever see some better stream phasing & stronger systems, SWMI will get better treatment. Besides, you're not beating me by that much, lol.

He means today. It looks like a dusting judging by webcams. I bet CentralNeb has gotten more from that one quick burst they got.

Hard to tell with the wind blowing it around. I am going to guess about 2 inches or a little less. Another wave is coming in later tonight and overnight with 1-3 more inches possible. Not used to this, to say the least. Current temp is 8 degrees with a wind chill of -7.

Was gonna say, didn't know NE peeps were getting another storm today???

Had family Christmas dinner and when we sat down about 5 it started ripping and my wife said it's like a fairy tale scene! +SN at the house during the past 90 or so min's, even reporting Hvy snow per the airport ASOS. It's going to force another venture outside to measure and shovel. Snowiest Christmas 2-days since I moved out of NMI 20 yrs ago. Fantastic! Can't script this any better for these parts.

All the snow has come via north stream dominant cold flow pattern and SEMI does best when it's a very cold pattern. If we ever see some better stream phasing & stronger systems, SWMI will get better treatment. Besides, you're not beating me by that much, lol.

Right now, the two bottom corners of the LP have the hot hand..

Still beating ya though.......SWMI should be like 10+inches ahead of the game by now...whats up w that!!!!! :lol: :P

Euro via Kuchera called for 5.5 to 6" around here, and if I pick-up a few tenths overnight it will have nailed it.

5.3" so far, 2.8 via the system and 2.5 via LES

Nice job by the Euro. Others weren't bad tho!

Well I picked up another 1" of snow pushing my snow depth up to 4". Highs are projected to stay below 10 today and the warmest temp of the week looks to be thursday. Doesn't look like we will see much melting so hopefully we can keep adding the snow up!!

'grats ovva there!

As expected, a late-game rally overnight til this morning netted another 1.3" bumping my total to 6.6"

Awesome Christmas gift by Ma Nature! It looks as white and fresh as I've ever seen it here in 9 yrs at my address! City finally plowed, but a coating fell since so everything's brightest of white like I remember in Traverse.
