The beat goes on as we continue through this cold and wintry opening week of April and yet another snow system looks to target the central Plains and slide into the S MW later this week into the weekend.  All the models are dialing in on this potential, but strength and track are still in question.  Let's dive in...

 

00z Euro has a stripe of 2-4" across C NE, 3-6" across KS into MO...

 

 

06z GFS...

NWS Hastings is talking accumulations Thursday night through Friday with wind, the Easter snowstorm had little wind. Also mentioning more snow Saturday night into Sunday. Crazy pattern here.

I wonder what the all-time April snow records are for your region for daily and full month snow tallies.

I wonder what the all-time April snow records are for your region for daily and full month snow tallies.

Our highest April snow-wise is 11.1", so that's not on the table. I don't think top-5 is either, that's 7.2".

 

The daily snowfall record for 4/6 is 4.2", I don't think that's on the table anymore. 4/8 is 1.5".

OAX going with 3-4" for here. Seems about right although this far out I would have gone 2-4".

Meh. Maybe another 1-2" snowfall for Omaha. Sounds like a nothing burger for ME. Sorry if I don't blow my shorts for that. It's funny how you don't care what I say yet you reference my nothing burger comment earlier this week and have to throw a comment back at that. :lol: Couldn't care less if central Nebraska, Missouri, Siberia or somewhere else gets more!

You got it! The only time this season I “referenced” your comment but yet, I had to deal with it all season long. It’s all good NEJeremy. All kidding aside, looks like you guys are in for a nice break from the cold next week.

Euro further North with accumulations for both waves. 3" in Lincoln Friday but a sharp cutoff South of here. Near nothing Sunday.

OAX with 2-4" for here in the point grid. That's what I'd do too. They've had a fairly good handle on this, sometimes it seems like they're looking at completely different models from us. Not this time. Think a WWA for 2-4" with isolated 6" is in the works.

This is a new development!

We're getting into "GFS is useless" range (which is every range nowadays anyways), but it's basically unchanged.

NAM probably went from one extreme to the next. Extremely wet to extremely dry. I'd put a good bet on 1-3 Friday and 2-4 on sunday's system.

For Lincoln I'd flip those around. I'm not sure I'd go with 2-4" for Omaha Sunday either. 1-3 for both waves seems like a decent bet for Omaha. I'm sticking to my 2-4" guns for Lincoln Friday till I see more model runs that make me wanna underage drink.

OAX put us on the Eastern edge of an advisory with 2-4" on the point grid. Still seems about right. NAMily still shows dry air f****g with this thing and making for a sharp cutoff over our county (when isn't there a sharp cutoff right on our county?)

Interesting storm.  WWA for the northern part of my area.  Models were really off with the heaviest snow from the Easter system.  They had warnings for areas north of I80, but it turned out that areas south of the interstate really cashed in, including me.  I noticed NWS Hastings disco this morning mentioned it might go north or south.  Always good to hedge your bets Hastings.

If the 12Z NAM is right, it might not even snow in Omaha. Shocking, right? 90% of me is happy with this as I am ready for spring although it will still be cold, but the other 10% of me is like really, a screwjob AGAIN?!

Keep it south, I am definitely not interested in another dusting to 2 inches of snow. Omaha snow lovers pretty much need to give up at this point... let’s put this snow season behind us and hope for better weather patterns in the future during Winter. Anyway the severe weather season is now almost upon us!

I see hope in the form of 60 degree weather for us in Eastern Nebraska mid next week! Let everyone else have snow on the ground and frigid temps... this guy is ready for some sun and warmer weather!

Keep it south, I am definitely not interested in another dusting to 2 inches of snow. Omaha snow lovers pretty much need to give up at this point... let’s put this snow season behind us and hope for better weather patterns in the future during Winter. Anyway the severe weather season is now almost upon us!

Yeah no kidding, another 1-2" snowfall would be a joke, other than at least it melts right away. For a while yesterday the models were looking more like a 3-5" snowfall possible, but that all changed with the 0Z runs last night. It just sucks it's still going to be cold even if we don't get any snow.

Can't wait for next week to have some spring temps!

I'm still not feeling horrible. Models have been bad with finer details such as dry air this whole season. We'll see tomorrow

NAM probably went from one extreme to the next. Extremely wet to extremely dry. I'd put a good bet on 1-3 Friday and 2-4 on sunday's system.


Maybe a couples flurries for you friday

Record lows on the table for Saturday morning if we get any kind of snow cover from tomorrow's system.  I would say snow amounts are looking less than yesterday's forecast and look to stay farther west imo.

18 hr HRRR is pointless but it's pretty moist. Looks like yesterday morning's NAM runs at the start of the event.

I know that this snow and cold weather of the last few weeks has caused havoc with the scheduling of sports activities.  Our school was supposed to participate in the following activities on Friday, all have been rescheduled:  track meet, golf meet, soccer games, tennis meet.  Our AD said in his 20 years of his athletic administration, he doesn't remember a stretch of time that so many activities have been postponed, cancelled, or rescheduled.  Example, our soccer team has played 1 game in the last 16 days.  He also said trying to find enough indoor spaces for practices for the activities has been difficult.

I'm not willing to die by the NAM quite yet. It's the only real model consistently showing dry air screwing us over. At this point, we still have Euro, GFS, HRRR, and RAP all on our side. At least in Lincoln (Sorry Craig & Jeremy).

Meh. I'd be happier with higher amounts on Friday than Sunday. At least tomorrow the snow would stick around the entire day into Saturday. Sunday whatever falls that day is gonna instantly go away as skies clear later on and/or ptype flips to rain.

I saw on Ken Siemek’s twitter page (channel 10/11 meteorologist from Lincoln) that he thinks dry air being pulled in from the east will limit snowfall in Lincoln and eastern Nebraska and most accumulation will be west of Lincoln towards central and western Nebraska. Who knows. I hope those that want snow get it. Ready for spring here.

My daughter was on the HS tennis squad from 2013-2016. All but her senior year were miserable cold and snowy springs here in SMI. We can relate! And there's really no such thing as a girl's "cold wx uniform". They were issued one skimpy uniform meant only for summer conditions. Wasn't too much fun for dad either. To spectate was to freeze. I do miss her playing tho

Well all teams competed today. No activities tomorrow or Saturday so it can snow and be cold for a few more days. You’re right about the skimpy uniforms, I think they are a little ridiculous. Companies obviously see a trend I guess.

Everything is looking pretty blah now. It's probably going to similar outcome as Easter in Lincoln.

This thing is dying a slow death. NAM and HRRR show it really weakening. Might get 1 inch here.

One last middle finger before Spring kicks in! It's fairly annoying how this whole season there has never been one solid blob of snow on radar here. It's all been thin lines that have dropped a quick 1-2 inches.

 

At least the pixie dust will be pleasant to look at.

Lightly snowing, radar looks like s**t. I think we've reached our daily high so let's hope radar turns better. If we'd gotten as much snow this year as we've gotten dry air during storms, we'd be looking at another 2009-10. 31.3°F.
