We have a pretty good snowpack at this point.  

Here are a few pics. My liquid equivalent from 4" of snowfall was 0.42". A bit of it was melting when it started last eve so about 10:1 ratio. My core samples were a bit lower, but I don't always trus

I have thunder snow!  First time I've had this since Feb of 2011.

An area of heavy snow mixed with rain is moving toward the
northwest from near Fife Lake.
This precipitation combined with
temperatures holding around freezing will make area roads very
slippery and possibly quickly snow and slush covered.


Slow down and watch for rapidly changing road conditions.

Looks like those out farther west in N IL/S WI will be the winners, esp out by StratoJeff and the RFD area, not much going on over here.  Hard to tell, but maybe I got 1" since last night.  Maybe tack on an additional 1-2" throughout the day today depending on that banding to swing back over here.

When the snowflakes last night were the largest I’ve ever seen—some were easily pushing 2.5”—we might have had over an inch. By morning it’s already settled by half. I’ll be surprised if the wraparound band amounts to much today.

 

On the plus sides, it is just beautiful out with snow stuck to every twig.

Reading LOT's graphics, this seems like a pretty big bust for the Metro region from what they were thinking a day or so ago. Sorry to hear that as I was planning on you reeling this one in for a nice hit and coming on this morning to congratulate you. Iirc, they were thinking a solid 4-6" over the Thu-Sat time span. Where are you attm? You mentioned an inch last night? Or more?

Big time bust. Lots of calls for 4-6, 4-8+, and even a 5-10”. I can report here locally that we got about 0.05” of slush.

Like Brian said, Big Bust for sure. That initial band that formed last night didn’t deliver the goods like the Euro or any other global/high rez model was showing. Actually, come to think of it, maybe the GFS scored a coupe! Lol

I'm sure the GFS with it's warmer bias "looks" stellar due to the warm regime we're stuck in. Not sure that's the case in a more typical stretch. It seems to be very late to the party when there's legit cold available to produce a snowstorm as we've seen several times so far this winter. Again, maybe our luck comes back with a new month looming  ;)

I was skeptical of band swinging around from the north, but in the end I pricked up another 1.5” of beautiful, large flake moderate snow in Lake Co and actually had some work to do to clean up. It was too heavy to push 2” across my wide drive without regretting it later. I’ll take it, as we still have not had a snowfall matching the 3.5” on Halloween.

Might just be one of those winters where any big storms will fail to materialize. It’s either that or there will be one that will just wallop everyone & nothing else after that.

I noticed your comment in the other thread that you didn't get any snow from this storm. Well, neither did I although there were some mood flakes in the air this afternoon melting on contact with 2 days of thaw and more than 1/2" of rain around here. While we got the royal complete shafting, others around us got some decent amounts. Like south of here in N. Indiana where they didn't even have a headline:

Tough first winter to be an adopted Mitt Peep. I don't think I can remember a snowstorm/system that gave the middle-finger-treatment like this!  :rolleyes:

Meanwhile, when it's your year, things find a way to hit yby. Case in point is "Da Yoopers" and "MO Peeps"
