Its nice to have a storm to track during these difficult times...sorta bonds us all together, right??

Merry Christmas, from MN.

Still some very light snow at times but I’m going with a final total of 5.5”. Not a bad way to end the snow season, if this truly is the end.

I wasn't expecting a nice warm and sunny Easter morning at all, but that's what I have here. No complaints with current temperature at 66°. I think the southern storms are robbing us of a lot of moisture. Rain missed me to the south last night and to the north yesterday.

‘20 - ‘21 season snowfall = 39.3”

Ripping harder in Grand Island than I ever saw in Lincoln this year. I’m at my roommates parents house, power was out for a bit this morning and came back in for a couple hours but now it’s out again.

Snowfall in Lincoln, NE:

2017-18: 21.4"   

2018-19: 55.5"   

2019-20: 17.6"   

2020-21: 49.4" (so far)

Average: 25.9"

Fatty flakes now. Starting to really stick. Temp down to 30F. Bright bands moving in from the southwest. The band actually extends all the way down to St Paul, NE.

Your gonna weenie your way to some good totals bud. Radar looks great for your area. Nice defo zone setting up.

Well we had some nice thunderstorms roll through parts of the metro area with a little bit of hail around 6am (triggered a Severe Thunderstorm Warning). Did not see much of anything in my backyard, outside of some light rain and some lightning. 

 

Looks like we won't see much sleet or snow from this system either as the deformation band to our west is falling apart quickly as usual, which I am actually grateful for - as we didn't need another nuisance event around here. 

 

Good riddance to this system... another complete dud for our area outside of more strong winds. The Winter storm season of 2019-20 in Eastern Nebraska needs to release us from its misery and should be forgotten.

The NWS was absolutely atrocious on this "winter storm". It was laughable how they were hyping it up for days and had heavy snow wordings in the headlines.  Then they slowly diminish totals as it nears and then today we basically get glorified snow showers with a dusting of accumulation. Do they say sorry for blowing it on an important day such as Easter? Of course not, just crickets.  The pointless snow shower makes this cold pattern even more useless and lame. 2020 continues to deliver, who's tired of winning?

Swing and big miss here as well.  I think we had snow for 30-45 minutes this morning and not even enough to cover the top of the grass.  It has been a rough year for models and the NWS as far as snow amounts and predictions.  At one time they had your area forecasted to get 2-5" and my area to get 1-4".Time to put this winter to bed and hope for snowier times in 20/21.

N Wisco and the U.P. did quite well with widespread 8-12" reports and heavier totals as you went up into the U.P. where some spots got 12-17".  SE MN got hit pretty hard with a general 6-9" and bullseye near Rochester where 9" totals were common.
