31 degrees in North Liberty.  My car says 31 my weather station says 31.8.  I left work early to avoid travelling on 380 on a skating rink.  Hoping we get a changeover to snow sooner than later.  Sleet even would be better than the rain we are getting now.

Sleeting here, can hear it popping off the skylights pretty good.

 

yes it has. Looks like it was raining a little, but can hear sleet mixing in now.

Wow! From 5-10 inches in KC in many runs leading up to today to some struggling to get to an inch of snow tomorrow.

 

EURO/NAM totally flipped today, less then 24 hours out from the snow part of the storm.

 

Hopefully they are wrong and the 18z HRR is correct which still shows the 4-6 inch band.

 

Nothing is a guarantee in the world of snow.

I think we are going to see around 2-5 in of snow the question is ice, do we get frz rain or sleet?

Air temp has been steadily dropping the last hour and a half. Was 34.7 about an hour and a half ago and is now down to 32.2.

HRRR brings another round of precip to the area tomorrow morning, but despite the column certainly supporting snow, the lack of moisture perfectly collocated with the DGZ might hinder flake production and yield more FZR/graupel rather than flakes. Seems like kind of an odd evolution to me, and if true, may hinder accums for at least part of saturday. hrrr_2020011020_018_41.59--92.07.png

Finally getting some better snow rates after watching the heavier stuff set up basically right across the interstate from me for the last hour. Ground and streets are finally getting white. I still think I don’t hit 1 inch before this is done in a couple of hours

As models suggested, the snow/sleet line in this area is barely moving.  It'll take hours to get down to Cedar Rapids.

Now all sleet again. Wonder how long we'll be fighting this battle. Hopefully not all night.

The snow is coming down at a pretty good rate right now in my backyard here in Southwest Omaha. The snow that is falling is blowing around pretty good, however I would estimate around 1 to 1 1/2 inches of snow is on the ground here.

 

Looks like I might tack on another half to one inch of snow to grab my biggest snowfall total so far this Winter season, yay LOL!

If the SN/IP line doesnt get here soon enough, it's going to start really cutting into totals and we may only get an inch or two. Looking at radar, the main slug of precip is already well into Iowa....

 

Incredible how this (quite literally) happens with every storm.

It's not even sleeting now.  It has switched back to rain.  We'll be lucky to get 2" of snow out of this.

The two loudest sounds known to man: a gun that goes bang when it is supposed to go click and a gun that goes click when it is supposed to go bang.

Maybe a half inch in Lincoln and sun is already poking out of the clouds as its winding down. What a joke.

There's a decent glaze on non-ground surfaces now.  The tree limbs are iced up and there are icicles on the bird feeder.

Main roads are still fine, but the side roads are for sure getting a little slick. Luckily the roads will be worst at a time when travel starts to slow down.

I'm so over this garbage. Looking like we may need to stretch it to even see an inch at this rate lmfao.

The last HRRR I looked at early had it not fully changing over until around 8-9. Hopefully that’s not the case, but I wouldn’t be surprised.

Snowflakes are starting to mix in here. Probably 40/60 sleet. Per CC, the snow sleet line is just about right in top of me.

About 2 inches of snow total here as the snowfall has pretty much ended in my backyard.

 

This likely qualifies as the biggest snowfall event I have seen yet this Winter- this “amazing” snow event finally ends the streak of 1 to 1 1/2 inch snowfalls. Time to go out and enjoy the freshly fallen white gold.
