  1. Not only a solid snow event, but one falling primarily during the day? I'm down.

  2. Beautiful day hiking along the Klickitat River! Clouds rolled in later causing some very light momentary sprinkles. Ahead of the storm front my buddy noticed these very light ribboned or spoked clouds too. I played with the photo a bit to enhance them. Really hard to see with the naked eye but was fascinated by them. 51/31 today in Federal Way mostly cloudy day there

  3. For the second day in a row there is a snow squall warning in Kansas, this time in the Goodland vicinity. There is also a special weather statement for a strong snow squall northeast of the Wichita area. I can't recall this ever happening before unless it was back in the 1960s or 1970s (when I was a kid). This could have been a monster storm if all the pieces had come together correctly. There is heavy snow falling to my southwest - normally a good sign of things to come - but I likely won't see a flake. Crazy...

  4. I think we can put to rest the line of thinking that goes, "Oooh, look, a warm blob in the northeast Pacific! Winter in the east is going to be awesome!"

  5. Twitter reports of 6-10" from Johnson Lake to Cozad Nebraska both in Dawson County.

  6. Daily stats are just that. Daily. Meaning they are fluid and not necessarily a constant reiteration of the same theme. If the daily stats were posted namely to tie into to a repeatedly emphasized, singular agenda (it's been a mild winter), then I think that would be more comparable. There certainly have been some occasions where that's been the case in the past, but not so much recently.

  7. It would be tough to be in your head for even just one day. But, we are all unique in different ways.

  9. Just like that, heavy snow has moved in. Visibility at 1/2 and dropping. Winds gusting to 35 MPH. How long will it last is the question.

  10. Haha, was such a busy Monday I couldn't follow after my early morning post(s). First bolded portion is why GRR hates synoptic systems and their challenges. While not a science focused AFD, they at least did a decent write-up overnight wrt models/trends/scenario

  11. About an inch on grass and colder surfaces...pavement is to warm and wet. The warmth from the past couple days really did a number on the frozen ground. I just can’t help but think what this storm “could” have been when they were flashing those big totals. The wind is howling and blowing the snow sideways. Yet again, we have a storm with marginal temps and warm ground.

  12. Missed some of these amounts by 1 county to my south, southwest, and west. Of course. https://twitter.com/NWSHastings/status/1232401882112495621?s=20

  13. Well our snow stopped about 1:30. Probably got close to 2" but lots of blowing and some melting it would be a little less imo. I guess this is the winter we're having and nothing we can do about it.

  16. This march looks like worst case for me. Warm start to ruin my ski hill, then cool off so I can't go out on the lake. EDIT: Also, this winter doesn't seem like it was that bad looking at snowfall totals. It just felt really bad because December was a big fat nothing and we got ahead in average so fast because of the Halloween storm. I think this winter is a good lesson in trusting models too much. An early snow is almost always a bad sign for winter being snowy and cold. And this one would have ended up below average if it weren't for the early one giving the stats a big boost. In my gut

  17. What a difference a year makes. 27” of snow last year in February. Not even 1” (.8”) this year.

  18. While falling thru the cracks of WPC's d3-7 hazards map, I did actually get on NOAA's day-2 for Hvy Snow fwiw..

  19. The only chance I have at maybe 1-2", I'd guess less, is from another snow band north of Grand Island moving to the Southwest. Always interesting when you see precipitation moving northeast to southwest or east to west.

  20. Very very foggy out. That usually precedes a big storm, so I'm starting to get excited. 35°F, rain supposed to start this afternoon with a changeover tonight.

  21. Bust here. Not 1 flake. The snow band set up 15 miles south, west, and northwest and sat for the night. It continued to move west southwest. NWS Hastings started trimming away counties on the east side of WWA and I'm sure more are coming. Been a rough winter for forecasters around here, and I know other places in the forum. Many schools have late starts or are closed just to my west. There have been unconfirmed reports of 6-10" in this band. This is the band that was predicted to sit over my county. Well, what can you do. Weather will do what it's gonna do. Frustrated. This is why

  23. Not sure why but my office has issued a wwa for up to 2 in of snow, I think I'll be hard pressed to get a dusting.

  24. Thank you for the maps, Tom. 06z RGEM also supportive of 6-8" here. Thinking that's where it will land with an outside shot at some double digit totals. Unless the Ukie is right...

  26. Unfortunately "next" is about 8-9 months from now. The biggest snow of the winter in Lincoln was 1.8". Just terrible.

  27. Been coaching 7th grade basketball this afternoon and evening so have been out of the loop. NWS Hastings has a snow band setting up over my area of Central Nebraska and not moving much. They mention a general 2-4” but possibly a much heavier band that could drop warning criteria snows of 6-8” with winds gusting to 40 mph. All I heard after our games was “what are the chances for a snow day tomorrow”. This would be quite a storm it it materializes. Not assuming anything, but hoping for the best.

  28. Glad you enjoyed the time up north. Sounds like a blast! Pretty crazy to think that winter fishing season is quickly coming to an end. I got out on our lake exactly one time all winter. Pretty soon we’ll be talking about ice out dates. This winter has been enjoyable like you said. Not too cold, and a good amount of snow. But I’m looking forward to spring after this past weekend. Thoughts of rolling the dock into the water and planting the garden.....ahhh! But, there’s another decent snow storm or two to deal with first. As long as we don’t get 30” in April like we did 2 years ago. Not sure I’

  29. Don’t project! A cool and wet spring sounds pretty horrifying. You will probably have to start working double time with the Tim shielding if it does pan out, and none of us want to see that.

  30. NWS Hastings Twitter showing the main snow band was only 10-15 miles wide. https://twitter.com/NWSHastings/status/1232411699505958913?s=20

  31. Interestingly though the AFD reads 6-8" attainable in eastern counties and our zone forecast explicitly totals 5-8". Regardless, let's hope for some enhanced banding (3km NAM style) to get us to those higher totals.

  32. An early AM storm I had Aug 10th I wish I had video of. Flashing every 3 seconds, pretty much a constant rumbling/booming and a few gusts 50-55mph. That would have rivaled a couple of my other vids from July 24 2017 or May 4 2016. Someone who owns a ranch about 13 miles to my east believes there was a nearby tornado, and he had 1" diameter hail. (This made an actual report on NWS). Storm happened at 3 or so AM.

  34. Picked up another 3" yesterday and early this morning. Up to 41" of snowfall on the month now. Ski resort in town reporting 16" of snowfall in just the past 24 hours as well. February has been very good to us in what is normally our driest month of the year.

  35. Schools closing like crazy just to my west as more heavy snow bands set up. Students at our high school, along with teachers, have been a little negative this morning as we are on time as usual. I told them they'd be 1 day smarter than the students getting the day off today. They didn't seem to like my humor.

  36. Interesting morning as you can look to the southwest and see the heavy snow band in the distance. So close yet so far away.

  37. And then there's us at the West end of Lake Ontario... I might even get the snowmobile out for a second time since November 12th 1999. Let it snow... Let it snow... Let it snow...

  39. Maybe we'd have better results if we disguised our storm threads better...maybe like... 2/24-2/26 Bluegrass Festival (Ring the doorbell so the big dog wakes up!!!)
