Flurries here. Very little snow, but very cold. When I left Memphis it was mid 60s and humid, so it's a breath of fresh air at least.

From an amwx poster heading home this evening. Sounds like this thing's an overachiever in The Mitt

 

 

Once I’m across the bridge, it feels like home. My house is 4 hours from the bridge, however, and I see it’s snowing there too. 

In Petoskey now. Someone in Charlevoix  County is going to see a foot.

Finished with about an inch here between the 3 waves. The earlier HRRR runs handled this better than the closer runs. DVN was just an all around disaster. Still don't know what the WWA in the morning was all about.

Happy New Year!!!

No snow on the ground here at my house so the major snow drought continues, Last night there was about a inch of sloppy snow on the ground about a mile to the north of my house but here at my house mostly rain with some snow at the very end. Might be some snow on Wed but a warm up for the weekend. And after that still no cold and no snow! With cloudy skies the current temperature here is 31.1

I realize I’m late, but I ended up with 0.58” of rainfall from this system. Didn’t see any flakes mixed in, but had a few flurries later. Was busy doing a bunch of year end things & trying to keep up on this forum! Lol
