Visibility down to a couple of blocks. Blowing snow issues. Streets are bad with now frozen slush being covered up by dry snow that easily blows. As people keep saying, this storm has a few more tricks in it before it ends.

Rain has been occurring off and on today. About 0.7" here so far today. HRRR suggests that snow on backside of storm will struggle to make it to Eastern Iowa tomorrow morning. If this storm wasn't weakening as it moves northeast, we may have been able to get a couple inches of snow out of this. Seems like the we won't be able to get more than half an inch of snow, if that.

There's okay-ish reflectivities headed towards here, but it seems like this will be our one and only shot at heavy snowfall. Other than that it is likely we will be dealing with light snow, so we need to rely on this here to at least lay the foundation for accumulating snowfall. 32.2*F.

I'd say I have 2 maybe 2.5 on the ground.  Eyeing that banding over by Omaha to hopefully swing through in a couple hours.  I'm just hoping to get 2 or 3 more out of this thing.  We'll see.

Had some very heavy rain and a couple flashes, some street flooding during the heaviest of the rain. Along with a cold east wind and a temperature of 35° it makes one raw night.

32.0*F. This basically guarantees we are done with rain, and roads are about to become a shitshow.

This is one of the most unusual winter storms that I can recall. I had 1.7 inches of rain overnight, 2 inches of slush this morning, then will probably tack on 6” of snow over all that. I have probably 3 inches of the fluffy snow that’s blowing around pretty good. I couldn’t imagine what the roads are like, especially county roads. I just can’t believe the nws downgraded us to an advisory, it’s the worst it’s been all day.

Starting to accumulate on the grass. Hearing reports that roads are slick. I'm about to take a walk to see for myself. 31.8*F.

Can the person in Lincoln pointing a blowdryer up in the air knock it off please? You're making the flake size puny and giving us bad reflectivities.

Okay this is actually very, very irritating. Reflectivities are vaporizing as they get here on radar. We could have gotten a solid hour of heavy snow had it stayed intact but now we'll be lucky to get anything larger than pixie dust. 31.5*F.

Looks like 2" outside from eyeballing it. Grass is barely covered. I'm pissed. We should NOT have gotten that screwed. The Omadome just shifted here and we got light returns all night. 29.5*F.

I will say I will not complain after this snowy surprise this system dished out here. Feel for our Lincoln peeps though for getting the shaft.

In downtown Omaha looks like a solid 5 to 6 inches of snow on the ground and maybe 1-2 to come. It’s a Winter Wonderland out here, will post some pictures later.

This is what radar looked last night. Effing ridiculous. Look how everything fizzled immediately before it got to LNK. I wish I could say that doesn't happen literally every snow event, but it does.

IF we get very, very lucky we could limp our way to another half inch today but it doesn't look very likely. Dry air can go die. 28.4*F.

Snow is falling in Cedar Rapids according to a friend. Giant snow globe flakes. Any of our CR posters getting anything? This is on the north side of town.

Nice flakes here. Maybe a half inch so far. Storm is fizzling though so we'll see how it goes today. Nice to see flakes and a white ground regardless!

Any >15 dBZ returns are still fizzling as they get here, then re-strengthening after they pass here. This is unbelievable. We need to launch a scientific theory into a dome over Lincoln.

 

Light snow still coming down. I'm wanting to at least cover whatever grass isn't covered. 28.6*F.

This is what radar looked last night. Effing ridiculous. Look how everything fizzled immediately before it got to LNK. I wish I could say that doesn't happen literally every snow event, but it does.

Ultimate shaft job loop. You can claim the blue ribbon for that at least..

 

Meanwhile, 52F and sunny here. Nice April morning. Neighbor dude has his fishing boat hitched-up and ready to go. My how the tables have flipped

22 Tornados reported in Illinois yesterday. My backyard looks like a pond, soupy ground, lots of leaves from my neighbors tree, broken tree branches...yuck, once it dries out it looks like I have a lot of yard work to do and tidy up the back and front yard. The entire neighborhood looks like this after the snow melt.

I picked up 0.81" of rain.  A couple hours ago it changed to snow.  The flakes were a good size, but it was pretty light, so nothing stuck.  Now it's just flurries.

 

This little bit of light snow is the first snow I've seen fall this season.  :(


season snowfall: 43.5"

 

'17-18: 39.5"      '16-17: 17.9"      '15-16: 20.0"      '14-15: 30.4"      '13-14: 48.3"      '12-13: 34.1"

 

Average snowfall: ~30"

Ya, crazy stat you typically see in the Spring let alone in the month of December.  I learned that IL has had Tornado's in 3 out of the past 4 years which is an odd stat as well.  As for the clean up, ya, that Blizzard last weekend has left its mark with damage and sloppy leftovers!

Went into church at 9 am and came out at 10:30. Got about an inch of snow during that time as a band set up over our county. Crazy, weird storm.

Yeah, looks like it's gonna hit my quadrant of the city too. It's weakened a bit but it will be pretty much the best return we have seen this whole time so I'll take it.

Just took a few measurements. Low end is 1.5". High end was 4". I'm going with a 2.5" tally here, though I have a gut feeling that may be too high.

 

Pixie dust still falling here. May get another couple tenths of an inch but I don't think we'll fare much better.

22 Tornados reported in Illinois yesterday. My backyard looks like a pond, soupy ground, lots of leaves from my neighbors tree, broken tree branches...yuck, once it dries out it looks like I have a lot of yard work to do and tidy up the back and front yard. The entire neighborhood looks like this after the snow melt.

Is it just me Tom, or has the entire tornado alley sector moved? 

 

The DFW area used to be able to count on at least 2 funnel clouds, if not tornados, every spring.  Today it's as bland as ever.  Even hail is not so common.  I'm not complaining at all, but things have shifted down here in the southern plains.

 

What's your opinion on our weather patterns in Texas in the future?
