Friday the 13th Winter Storm???


Recommended Posts

Snow just started here.  Moderate snow is being reported to the west, so this should be a nice burst.

About 0.6" so far, so we have a real shot at 1".  My season total is now 30.0".

I'm receiving the heaviest snow so far.  It is very pretty.  Unfortunately, the back edge is quickly approaching.  There may be a bit more snow later, but the snow on the ground will likely begin to melt as soon as this batch ends.  Later, the strong sun will slow any accumulation.

1.4" here from the first round.  I'm not sure how well the next batch will accumulate as we warm up and the sun gets stronger.

Congrats Coach. Great day to stay in and watch the Boys State Championships

Yes it is! Pretty surreal watching with no fans but glad they are playing them! Did you see the class A and B semis got time on sports center last night?!

Here it didn't start snowing till 9:45am or a bit before which is around 1.5 hours later than start time at your place according to the time of your other post. Radar did show a dry hole over me. Anyway, there's only up to 1/2" at most on the grass and now it's beginning to melt during the lull.

It's looking very wet yet by late next Thursday. Hopefully we can get some thundershowers here with that system.

I'm finally getting another moderate burst of snow, but it will not last long.  The first batch this morning was a solid shield, but the afternoon snow is more streaky and scattered.

 

Even northeast Iowa is getting into some good snow.  Models really under-forecasted the northward push.

I’m guessing 3” here as well. Was still up at 4am when it was coming down the hardest. Easily the best snowfall rates of the season and the most snowfall of the year.

The best part is I didn’t have to shovel a scoop and my driveway, sidewalk, and the roads are dry already!

1.6" here now after the last burst.  Radar shows another burst moving in over the next hour.  Maybe I can make it to 2".

It is just cloudy here now with a temperature of 41 and while not weather related I will toss this up anyway as it received  my attention.

 

 On a note on the coronavirus testing Here is something to toss around in your head. This is from the WOOD TV8 web site.

“The Greenville Daily News reports the Montcalm County patient, a woman in her 60s, had traveled to southern Italy with her husband and believes she was exposed on her flight. Both she and her husband were tested at a local hospital and while she tested positive for coronavirus, her husband, although he had symptoms, did not. She is under quarantine for two weeks.”

Ok why did the woman test positive and the man did not??? I would think I would do a retest just to be sure. One has to wonder how may false positive and false negative test are taking place???

The final band weakened and didn't amount to much, so my total is 1.6".  Grass is already becoming exposed once again.  By this time tomorrow there will be no sign any snow fell.
