Continue to have brief waves of mostly graupel passing through this evening. The latest batch was nearly pea size and almost sounded like small hail hitting the house. Don't really see this too often. I'd rather have the near blizzard conditions but oh well...lol. Temp is 31F.

ETA: Just had a loud clap of thunder to go with all of this! Rockin' and rollin' out there...lol

Even with the most recent (0Z) GFS giving C.IA 8"+ and been rather consistent -- I don't buy it.

Last event on FEB 9th-- it's 06Z run had DSM getting 4.0" by 12Z --- got .1".

Same goes with RDPS. Toss it. Sadly its likely going to be HRRR with the win.

My office basically says they have no idea lol

 

GRR

Will not be making any changes to the current advisory and precip/snow amounts, but there are still some uncertainties with the Thursday system. First, the QPF amounts are still in question with the new 00Z NAM showing only around 0.3 to 0.5 but the 00Z HRRR/ARW forecasting 0.5 to 0.75. All 3 of these HiRes models do have the same placement of the max QPF axis/swath though, from roughly BIV to GRR to AMN. This corridor also represents the likely dividing line between mostly snow to the north and mostly sleet to the south, so where it is primarily all snow the 4-6" amounts should work out fine and there may be locally more than 6" depending on where the best FGEN banding sets up (and if the HRRR/ARW QPF is accurate). Meanwhile the newer guidance is less bullish on QPF across the area north of a MKG to MOP line, suggesting accumulations may be lower than currently forecast. However snow ratios should be higher across this area being deeper in the colder air. This is a case where a model blended QPF and Snow Ratio approach may not be ideal. The values may be too smeared out and lower over a broader area. It is quite possible in this event that a relatively narrow band of heavier snow/sleet occurs within or near that BIV to GRR to AMN corridor, with less precipitation occuring on either side of where the best FGEN forcing zone sets up.

Well dry air wins out here. Nothing falling but radar is showing reflectivity.Going off humidity; I’m sitting at 77%. Places getting light snow are at 82% and @CentralNebWeatheris sitting at 88% with moderate snow. South central Nebraska is gonna do really well. I’m holding on hope areas from Lincoln and Omaha on east get something. You guys are so over due.

It really began snowing here maybe 45 minutes ago and it's already getting a bit white out there! It started sooner than I expected so it could over perform, but there's a lot of sleet mixed in now and I hear it hitting the window so that could cut into totals. But some sleet was kinda expected at onset down here. Saw some big flakes too. This probably won't be a high ratio snowfall here with plenty moisture available.

Started here about 30 mins ago. Overcame dry air quicker than I thought but about on par with CAM's.

Been watching the obs and radar near Holdrege,NE--- they have to have at least 8" based on what I've seen.

Thunderstorm activity got further north than I was expecting. I got an inch of rain in 30 minutes, with 1.09" total. Good frequent lightning too. It was a nice surprise to the upside for rainfall.
