I was hoping we’d get some flakes here but it isn’t looking too likely based on trends and models. Everything will likely stay West and north of here. It’s still possible later but it won’t be anything like the fun you guys are seeing today. Congrats to those seeing the snow today. Pretty cool for mid October

Got a solid 3 inches here in West Omaha. My friend just a bit north said he might have gotten near 4. Some huge branches are snapping too.

This is a pretty impressive system.  Frankly, I don't want it because I still have 4-5 hummingbirds and it'll be tough enough for them when the plants die in the morning.

 

5" reported near the UNL campus, where it accumulated quicker this morning.

 

And this morning you thought you were getting little/nothing.  Must be a great surprise.  I hope to get a nice surprise dumping in a couple months.

Just measured about 2.5 to 3 inches of snow in my backyard in Southwest Omaha, NE. Snow is pretty much done here outside of a little leftover light snow and flurries, and it's already starting to melt. 

 

Power outages now up to nearly 55K in the Omaha metro, reported by OPPD. Thankfully no power issues in my neighborhood (almost all the power lines around here are buried underground). Drove around a little bit and there are some large tree branches down, not widespread, however enough to cause issues. 

 

This system drastically outperformed my expectations, I was expecting a little bit of snow with no more than a half inch of snow - which I figured would melt off after a 65 degree day yesterday. Glad I was wrong!

Watching the news I have seen trees and power being affected by this storm. Biggest total I have seen so far is 7 inches around friend which is in Fillmore county. I had my first teaching job around that area and we didn’t receive crap for snow back then!

Flurries falling again. Still hear dripping from the storm gutters. Flash freezing should be a problem tonight. I'm staying off the roads until after rush hour tomorrow. 31.6°F.

Yes, NAM for the win.  I kept hoping for a north bump to my area but didn't happen.  I got about 1 inch at the most.  We will see if this is the model of choice for the upcoming winter months.

LNK do you know the stats of what those winters ended up like? Obviously we know what happened in 2009-2010. I am just curious if there is any correlation when we receive the overall rare October snow.

I looked at it. October snow doesn't seem to have much correlation with how a Winter plays out.
