Pure rippage out there right now. Nice fatty flakes stacking up quickly. Should have no issues getting several inches before the switchover to rain around 3am.

Pretty sure he said that his local grid-cast had 6-10 total. Graphics on the NWS site haven't been updated tho. Still old snowfall maps, etc..waiting to see the latest


I just looked at his grids and they say 3-5 also total

Seems like that’s what they’re going with

That's some pretty cold and dense air just NE of Georgian Bay. If that's a little bit more difficult to budge, could help the UP of Michigan quite a bit with their expected switch over to RN tomorrow.

Thanks. Sucks hard that the rain will melt most of it by tomorrow morning. But I’ll take whatever snow I can get these days. This will put me into double digits for the season. Pretty sad.

NWS Hastings update.

.UPDATE...
Issued at 851 PM CST Wed Dec 26 2018

The 18Z and 00Z mdls have nudged the snow a little further E since
4 PM fcst package.

Am very concerned that the RAP/NAM/GFS/EC are all indicating a
core of 45-50 kt winds at 850 mb developing on the back side of
the low after 09Z. MOS winds hv been shown to be 5-8 kt too low
in these situations. I incrsd winds above MOS...but fear I may
not hv incrsd winds enough. Nonetheless...we are now advertising
gusts up to 50 mph.

We contemplated issuing a Blizzard Warning but after coordinating
with neighboring WFO`s and in-house collaboration here...decided
instead to beef-up the wording in the Warning/Advisory areas to
include blzd-like conds. It is going to be nasty traveling thru
this band on I-80 tomorrow.

Even where snow accums will be less significant...we are still
concerned about blzd-like conds.

Based on the magnitude of the winds and accumulating snow inching
more to the E...svrl more counties hv been added to the Warning
and Advisory areas.

Blizzard Warning baby.

 

Radar looks good out your way.  Is the snow ripping good?  I'm really jealous, seems like you've had a lot more luck with systems lately than me and we're in almost the same area.  These storms have had stupid cutoffs and I'm always on the wrong side over further East.

Wow, that wind is REALLY cranking outside.  It's gotta be gusting upwards of 40 mph.  I can definitely see why the blizzard warnings have been hoisted.  This is a very impressive system.  I've had over an inch of rain from it so far and might squeeze out several inches of snow.  Another disappointment in that regard.  This is the 2nd system that soaked me with over an inch of rain this December.  Ridiculous.  I'm beyond over these 2 inch snowfalls and that's all I've had this season.

Still in SE TX, but I'm gonna hijack this thread cuz it's the same system. QLCS (Seems more like an MCS actually) is moving thru now. This line isn't as severe as originally anticipated, but it is instead more dense return-wise and way slower. Leading edge just passed over here. This is the kind of stuff that always brings flooding problems to here. Gross. There also appears to be weak widescale rotation.

Flying back to Lincoln today.

Can barely see across the street. Really picked up in the last hour. Definitely no one should venture out in this I read a NWS discussion nationally that we may see 1-2” an hour snowfall rates. Wow.

Was in bed and saw a flash then a rumble of thunder. Thundersnow. Local ABC met then tweeted the radar showing the lightning strike a few minutes later. Unreal.

Temp up to 36 here which should be the high, but the rain hasn’t materialized. That’s actually good as it’s not melting the snow that fell overnight. Should see a bit more snow on the backside after the dryslot moves through.

Congrats to C NE.

Though I don’t see any on 511 Nebraska, local ABC says some area roads are closed. Those might be county highways. Interstate 80 has to be horrendous in places. You would be a fool to drive right now.

Winter Weather Advisories have been expanded to include areas just west of Omaha now, including Lincoln and Fremont. This is mainly for freezing rain, sleet and 1-2 inches of snow.

Temps are crashing here in Southwest Omaha... was around 50 at 8:30 this morning, now at 38. Seems that the models underplayed the speed of the cold air intrusion along with missing how far to the east this storm tracked.

Yeah I'm getting a bit concerned about the drive from Omaha back to Lincoln after my flight this afternoon. May have to take side roads if it's bad enough.

Blizzard continues here. Back to .25 visibility. Most places are closed. Obviously no school is in session until January. Many holiday basketball tournaments are being postponed.

Get some pics if you can, your really gonna cash in on this! Your seasonal snow total continues to climb for sure. I received 2.1” of rain along with sleet and freezing rain. Remains to be seen if I get any snow from this.

I sure will. Will be really tough to measure with the blowing and drifting. My guess is we have gotten 5-8” so far but that is a just an estimate from standing on my deck, obviously not official and maybe I am off a little one way or another. I did see someone posted on Twitter 7” and climbing. We’ll see.

Omaha is now included in the Winter Weather Advisory through tonight due to ice accumulations of up to a tenth of an inch, and up to an inch of snow along with 40 MPH winds. This is an unexpected surprise.

I picked up 1.36" of rain overnight, at the high end of the expected range.  I would love to hear some thunder later, but I'm not counting on it.

Omaha got added interesting. I'm in Springfield IL atm and the wind here is nuts. Edit: it's 51 but it is sleeting here. The upper levels of this storm is nuts.

I enjoy thunder in the Winter during a major snowstorm, when suddenly, once you hear the boom go off, the snow really gets hvy. Its awesome stuff.

Not a fan of ice, but enjoy your WWA. Stay safe there.

Wow, that wind is REALLY cranking outside.  It's gotta be gusting upwards of 40 mph.  I can definitely see why the blizzard warnings have been hoisted.  This is a very impressive system.  I've had over an inch of rain from it so far and might squeeze out several inches of snow.  Another disappointment in that regard.  This is the 2nd system that soaked me with over an inch of rain this December.  Ridiculous.  I'm beyond over these 2 inch snowfalls and that's all I've had this season.

Speaking of ridiculous, I have seen only 0.1" of snow thus far in December. Honestly, it does not want to snow this month at all. In fact, after today's rainstorm here IMBY, another rainstorm is forecasted for NYE n NYD. Ugh!

This is incredible. Sitting about 1 mile north of the rain snow line... Wunderground radar shows the freezing line retreating by about 10 miles and it started "snowglobing" outside after raining lightly for a couple hours. Hope it stays this way.

Lucky you! Hope the snow adds up. Pouring rain and 34 here. Streets and yard are flooded. I got about 3” of snow overnight and now it’s like thick cement. It’s going to be interesting when all of this water freezes tonight.

Just picked up a few mood flakes of pixie dust around here... the WWA was definitely not warranted for Omaha.

This was definitely a late December “rainer” for this area, picked up 1.60 of rain for the storm total. I would have been happy with this kind of system in September or April, however getting this kind of moisture without enough cold air in place for snow this time of year around here is a huge disappointment. On to the next I guess.

Just drove around out town. Many cars stranded and drifts are going to make tough work on driveways. I got my done but it was hard work. Still waiting for official snowfall totals, my guess is 8” or so but hard to measure with 50 mph winds. In some places I can see the top of the grass and in other places it is a deep snow pack. Saw some impressive drifts

This is the 2nd system with over an inch of rain for me this month. I've been missed from every direction by the heavy snow bands.  I'm really about to blow a gasket honestly. Ended up with a measly inch while areas 60 miles to the West got over 6 inches once again.

One final briefly heavy shower just passed through here bringing my storm total to 1.26". Now the soil is thawed out again which is good in that it prevented runoff. I think it all soaked in.
(‘18 - ‘19 season snowfall total: 52”. )
‘18 - ‘19 season snowfall by month = Nov: 14.2, Dec: .30”, Jan: 21.2”, Feb: 13.8”,
Mar: 2.5”
Greatest season snowfall = 60.5” in 2007 - ‘08

Did another drive around town, some streets and roads on the edge of town are impassable. Wind continues and a new batch of snow is moving in right now.

The Arrowhead of MN is getting raked...there was report of 18" along the lake shore earlier this afternoon and its been snowing non stop heavily since then and will likely continue all night, esp with ENE winds enhancing the snowfall.  That's prob going to be the golden zone from this storm.
