Dry air has pushed everything North. Guess we have to get screwed to the North one more time this year.

I feel for ya man, you missed the Easter Sunday snow and now this one isn't looking to good.  OMA peeps look like they are getting some powdery snow ATM.

I get to hear it from the teachers lounge, "where's the snow"?  I tried to explain about the dry air, but they said we changed all of the schedules for nothing.  NWS Hastings is saying all models have reduced snow, and the WWA may expire early if little or no snow falls. Most places will struggle to get to an inch imo, unless a quick burst comes through.  I am not complaining for my area, but many areas have been missed time after time.  Just add one more notch in the belt of misses or non events this season.

We're at least getting pixie dust here now. Looks like the dry slot may be trying to fill in. There is hope for an inch still. Roofs have whitened up. 28.4*F.

I don't think we even get an inch here. Local forecasts keep backing down, now just saying snow showers with no accumulations. Most models were way to moist with this system and just caught up last night with the drying trends.

It's accumulating here, radar is just shitty. You're in a horrible place with the dry air.

Ripping here now but only cuz we're in a progressive weenie band. Thinking we're gonna progressive weenie band our way to an inch for the rest of the day.

You're right.  Actually is a lot brighter here than 1 hour ago.  What a miss by the models and forecasters.

We were at around 1/2” as of 800. At this rate we might make it to an inch by noon. 95% pixie dust with breaks of no snow and every once in a while we get a couple minutes of maybe dime size flakes. Weak sauce. Onto the next non event Sunday before we get warm next week!

I guess congrats is in order :D.  The sun just tried to peak out here for a few seconds.  I thought we might get 1", but I wonder if we even get a dusting.

I might have to revise my total down. Hasn’t snowed in over an hour now in the persistent dry spot I’ve been stuck in

As the radar shows the snow moving southeast, it just fizzles out when it hits I-80.  I am about 15 miles south of the interstate.  The dry air has definitely put the kabosh on this system.  I sure hope the storm late next weekend could be one of the dynamic spring storms with severe weather, and possible blizzard conditions on the northwest side of it.  Those are fun to track.  Been awhile since we have had one of those storms around here.

Decent reflectivities keep dying right as they get here so we're stuck with pixie dust garbage.

1" from midnight to about 5:30  A true stat-padder as it's already 38º and wiped-out.

 

I'd take half my seasonal total in (3) 10" storms. 1) At Christmas  2) For MLK Day 3) VD any time vs how I got where I am without a dbl digit event  :lol:

Measured an inch on the grass. It's a shame that this whole season we haven't been able to get good rates for more than 10 minutes at a time. In other news, roads are gonna be hellish tonight with flash freezing. 21.4*F.

Last few flakes are flying now and the sun is trying to peek out. Judging by the fact that it's 4pm I don't think the sun will cause much melting today. 21.2*F, wind chill 7.

I ended with right at 1” Snowed hard for a couple hours, but even with cold temps, the April sun angle held down more accumulation. Record lows on the table for tonight.

Our only accumulation is on the grass. Still heading for a record low of 13 tonight even without much of a snowpack

GOD the airport sucks at measuring wind-driven snow. I realize this storm was a dud but I got an inch here and I got basically weaker versions of the reflectivities the airport is getting. They recorded 0.2".
