Kinda neat how the line is a series of arcing line segments.

 

A weaker part of the line moved over my yard.  I picked up 0.34" of rain and moderate wind, with a bit of lightning.  Areas just south and east got severe wind.

 

It's nice to see parts of the midwest getting some decent snow.


season snowfall: 50.2"

Average snowfall: ~30"

Tree came down a couple blocks from here due to winds between 40-50mph. Just had heavy rain and lightning. Little calmer atm.

Wow. Pretty amazing intense strong winds several tree branches down think that was the best severe storm of the year in though it was short lived due to the storm's hauling azz.

The winds on the backside of the system, at least up this way, have underperformed I would say. Was expecting a lot of 50+ mph gusts with potential for 60 mph winds and most max wind gusts I have seen have been around 45 mph and a lot of places haven't reached 40 mph(at least on the hourly or obs). High wind warnings have been cancelled early here too.

Should get a boost in wind when the main line blows through.

Yup, powerful gusts just hit my area right before the rains...leaves flying all over the place...

 

Edit: Seems like several downburst's are hitting once the rains started.  These storms more than likely tapping into those higher winds a little higher up in the atmosphere.

Pouring down in sheets here with gusty winds. No thunder this time around though.

Will be awhile before the cold air gets here. Still in the low 50s in eastern Iowa, while it is close to snowing in Des Moines.

 

Not many leaves to fly off the trees anymore, but the ones on the ground are going towards the north.

Lol. I was just telling my dad earlier when talking about hunting during thanksgiving week that I had been worried about all the leaves still on the trees. He said "Well, I think we took care of that problem today didn't we!" We most definitely did!

So far the wind here in Grand Rapids has been in the 30 to 35 MPH range with the highest gust so  far being recorded as 47MPH.  So far no where near the winds we had back in the November 10, 1998 storm. As of 8:30 AM there were about 11,000 with out power. The winds might pick up later this afternoon will see if that plays out later. Right now at my house the temp is 44 and the winds are out of the SW at 21MPH with rain.

Winds last night woke me up a few times.  This is the first time I have seen the SkyWay closed due to high winds/flying debris...

I only can imagine if this storm hit Dec-Mar with all the wind we are experiencing today.  Blowing and drifting would be epic!  Multi-day Lake Effect set up would be insane on the MI side.  Gotta keep that in mind when this storm cycles through.

Or 11-11-40 when GR had gusts to 80mph.  I lived in S. Bend in '98. I remember shingles ripped off roofs was a common site. I knew this wasn't going to that level, so not too disappointed. Pretty damned windy at the lakeshore, but nothing close to the backside of the DEC 2012 Wisco bliz storm. That was nuts here. Constant howling and lots of mechanical stuff on the roof getting battered and creaking and slamming. Gotta leave early and get somewhere important. So picture stop not an option today - sorry

Trust me, it's been on my mind. Looks like at least the UP will get some snow OTG for gun deer season opening. My cousin has a place near L'anse and they're under a WSWarning this morning. Nothing massive like last year, but there's perhaps no snow to begin the season 50% of the time. Thinking we're not that far behind normal progression of the onset of winter. We just all got last year's super early start fresh on our minds. Last year's like a once in 50+ years kinda deal though.

I haven't seen specific snowfall totals from NWS Hastings or North Platte.  What I saw on TV this morning was 1-3 inches in Central Nebraska (higher along I-80) than south of the interstate, and 3-5 inches in West Central and Southwest Nebraska.  Thought I saw Ogallala had 4.7 inches.  Of course it would have been more if not for the amount that melted.  Right now there is only small amounts left on the north side of buildings in my area.

Top gust here was about 45mph. At Waukegan Harbor however, the top gust was 66mph late last night!

Saw 4 power poles snapped off along a busy county road this evening. The spot is kind of a high point and exposed to the wind, so not entirely surprised by the sight.

Ended up with 1.6" of rain and snow and hail! Snow mixed in at the end but didn't really accumulate at all. Still had piles of hail by the downspouts the next morning, 20 hours after the hail fell!! Of course temps in the 40's and then 30's helped keep the hail around longer. Top windgust was 47 mph
