You remember the Geos snow magnet? In terms of Nebraska, that's you my man. Congrats, you've been killin it this year so far. I wish this d**n thing would fill in, it's comical that it's not snowing here but it's snowing in every other direction.

I have been really lucky nebraskaWX.....I wish I could rub some of my luck towards you guys!! Good luck my man!

watch the heavier returns constantly disappear as they approach Omaha. I doubt we hit 1/2" at this rate. At least I won't have to shovel two nights in a row!

If I lived in NebraskaWX territory I'd be nervous af. Northern edge of the band is trying to move SE. I'm feeling fine where I am.

 

Edit: I was ignorant for posting the part I crossed out. I said that just basing it off Hastings radar. Looks fine on OAX radar.

I'd say we got about 3/4" here. That snow band sagged overtop of us earlier for quite awhile. Hopefully this thing doesn't fizzle, but I don't see us getting more than 1.5" here. I can't tell if I should be excited looking at radar or disappointed, it's like dying but filling in so who knows.

13-14 : 0"

14-15: 0"

15-16" : 0"

16-17 : 0"

17-18 : Probably 10", so in other words, 0" ​ 5.5"

 

 

# of times it was too warm and ended up being 33 and rain during these years : 20

# of times the storm essentially turned into dust: 25

# of times the storm looked at Nebraska and was like "yeah, good joke" , then ran to Chicago: 50

It's not dying. Hastings radar shows this being awesome actually.

Just went for a walk. 1" is down on the sidewalks right now. No roads have been plowed as of yet. I saw a near-accident on my walk. Someone turned right on red when someone wasn't that far away from the intersection.

LOT Discussion:

The fairly impressive instability juxtaposed with the strong mid level f-gen band raise
concerns about a window of potential heavy snow late this evening
near and especially just south of I-80. Concerned that snowfall
rates could briefly reach an inch or so per hour. Have sharpened
up the snowfall forecast for tonight with a narrow band of 2-4"
now from far southern LaSalle and far northern Livingston county
to central/southern Lake Co IN.

Nice! Now that's the kind of update I like to see! Some SR models want to reach 4" in parts of SMI as well. This should be waaaayyyy more impressive for Marshall than last night

Winter 2017-18 Snow Total = 68.3"  Oct: 0.0 Nov: 0.0 Dec: 24.2 Jan: 14.5 Feb: 19.7 Mar: 4.7 Apr: 5.2 (annual avg for mby = ~49.9", avg for last 10 seasons = 67.4" ) 135% of normal-what a stretch it's been!!

 

Winter 2016-17 Snow Total = 52"

Winter 2015-16 Snow Total = 57.4"

Winter 2014-15 Snow Total = 55.3"

Winter 2013-14 Snow Total = 100.6" (coldest & snowiest in the modern record!) 

Winter 2012-13 Snow Total = 47.2"

Winter 2011-12 Snow Total = 43.7"

 

Notable Blizzards/Snowstorms in SWMI: Nov 2015, Feb 2015, Jan 2014Feb 2011, Dec 2000, Jan 1999, Mar 1998, Jan 1982, Jan 1979, Jan 1978, Jan 1977, March 1973, Jan 1967, March 1947, Jan 1918

I have the same amounts (2-4"). Lets see if they will overperform. Somehow I knew this would trend stronger. :D

Down to light pixie dust so I went ahead and took my final measurement. My measurements ranged from 1.5" and 2". There were more 2" amounts, so I'm gonna go ahead and say I got 1.8" here. Roads still aren't plowed, Lincoln is so efficient. That would make my total for this 3-day nickel and dime event 4.1". Depths were anywhere from 3" to 4" depending on where I measured. Remember that disturbed areas from Sunday's event got nothing otg, while undisturbed got up to 1.5". Grass is covered everywhere. Let's keep our temps down on Thursday and prep for what will hopefully be a big event this weekend!

Looking at radar and hi-res modeling seems heavier banding of snow will be farther north and at least through Chi Metro if not further north. Some areas could be in for a surprise when it's all said and done.

I measured around 4.5” this evening for today’s snow event. I have a snow depth of over 8 inches counting the Sunday snow. Boy have things turned here. Let’s see what happens this weekend if we can add to this. Temps will plummet tonight with the snow pack.

Cloud cover is looking pretty favorable too. Not having the sun out as much will let the melting not accelerate.

Looking at radar and hi-res modeling seems heavier banding of snow will be farther north and at least through Chi Metro if not further north. Some areas could be in for a surprise when it's all said and done.

Sure does Tony and its looking a lot better than I was expecting it would.  First flakes are already flying ahead of schedule.

Just measured exactly 1.5" of fresh powda and with some pretty heavy returns over my head I'm expecting to tack on another couple tenths.  Huge fatty flakes falling ATM.  This stuff is very high ratio, probably close to 20:1.

The last band that went through laid down another 0.3" which brings my total from this system to about 1.8" which is about what I had anticipated.

M1.6 of densely packed tiny flakes during a lull around 6 am, then I see another nice blob popped-up on radar and moved across Calhoun cnty since I left for work. Likely made at least a solid 2". Best of this ran along just S and E of mby up to the snow magnet zone of Detroit. 

 

Closing in on 7" since Sunday for Marshall. Now across SWMI is a solid 6-12" snow pack heading into the exciting period  :)

Here is a map of the totals around my area. The reporter north of my town had 3.2" and a town 7 miles west of me had 3.2" so I would say my 3.5 is pretty accurate!!

Just finished cleaning out the snow and quite shocking as to how much stronger the sun angle this time of the year is. Snow was melting even w temps in the lower 20s.
