After NO measurable snow in Nov or Dec, I have picked up 3.25" (so far) on Jan 1. It started around 5:30 AM briefly as sleet and quickly changed to snow. Still snowing so maybe pick up a bit more befo

I got back from TN. on Saturday evening already. They had a pretty bad ice storm north of St Louis where I saw plenty of tree limbs down. Not that much snow till we got to Iowa. One of the first thing

Looks like a great way to ring in 2021 for KS/MO folks, congrats down there. Just an overcast day up here, but at least white ground instead of brown.

About an inch on the ground. Temp hovering around 26-27 but it’s a wet snow falling. 

U of I cam shows continued mod to heavy snow.  Spotter report near IC says 1.5".  Here in CR, not a flake.  CR finally gets missed for once.

Iowa City got bulls-eyed by both storms.  I won't see a flake from this one.

94 was a slush-fest with +MIX on my NYD commute. Multiple incidents. A true ditch party day.

GRR saying it will be moisture starved because waves 1 and 2 weren't.

We’ve picked up 4” since 6:30 here in northern lower Michigan, Higgins Lake, crazy because we were only supposed to get 1-2” total. Snowmobiling should be great tomorrow! Happy new year!

Check that, up to 5 1/2-6” already since 6:00 ish and still snowing! Awesome overachiever storm!

Radar suggested the mix hung in all day east of Iowa City.  It was mostly a junk storm with a few lucky locations picking up 2-4 inches.

So crazy. I totally lucked out. It was all snow here all day. 2” was my total. Very pretty picturesque day.

Looks wintry outside and very icy. Never switched over to rain, just freezing drizzle. I'd say about an inch fell, or maybe very close to it just by looking at my patio. Everything is snow covered w a layer of glaze, crunchy ice on top of it. Will get more snow tanite as the back edge slides through my area and proving a 1-3inch accumulation. Morning scenery should be a nice one. Luv the fact that a decent snowevent follows 24 hours later ( no mixing this time). 😀

In Iowa, it appears Iowa City was the winner with 4" of snow.

Here just northwest of Grand Rapids I have had freezing rain mixed with snow and now it is just snow. I now have 1.5" of new snow and around 3.5" of total snow on the ground. The current temperature here is 30 and the last reading at the airport was 31.

Stepped out of work to pound town wet snow. By the time I made my way around the car swiping off the 1.5" my windshield was covered again. Was in that weenie band for about 12 miles and 94 was a mess. Thankfully light traffic due to the holiday. Got towards home here and disappointed to see only a coating. Nothing like 15 miles in every direction making a difference between decent snow fall and chump change. It's really getting old. I see radar and that great action half a county west literally falls apart as it heads this way. When will we get a real snow event here, Idk? Tom, how'd you finish up? At least it didn't get above freezing here. Hard to tell at night but looked like trees had some ice. Not enough to weigh down branches which is a good thing.

ORD ended up with a whopping 1.3" when I for sure thought we would squeeze out at least 3" (on the safe side) from what the avg of all the models were showing.  That warm nose crept about 50-75 miles farther north than expected.  It ended up going as far north as parts of SE WI (Sheboygan/MKE area 4-5") which wasn't modeled until the nowcast moment.  They ended up getting 3-5" and I think some of that was lake enhancement.  We just didn't have the deep cold air in place to make it happen.  End result, places in S WI got a surprise overachiever, as well as, one of our members in S MI who reported 5-6".  Hey, the silver lining is that we finished with some "new" snow to cover up the "old" snow.  

On a positive note, Topeka/KS region got their first decent plowable snowfall in a long time.  It looks like a solid 3-6" band set up right through E KS.  Not only did they do well, but the hot spot OKC area got hit with yet ANOTHER snowstorm (6-10") and we shouldn't forget about our Lone Star state that got slammed with up to a Foot in parts of W TX.  Crazy storm.  I guess we'll have to see this part of the LRC cycle back in mid Feb.  Till next time...

I survived the warm-nosed and dry-slot dusting of 01/01/2021. Lol.

What a way to kick off the new year all around me. I'm so glad. Many folks needed some snow and some fun and I'm glad to see everyone having a blast. That's what it's all about. 

Parts of okc and west are already a foot plus on the snow season. That's nuts.

I got back from TN. on Saturday evening already. They had a pretty bad ice storm north of St Louis where I saw plenty of tree limbs down. Not that much snow till we got to Iowa. One of the first things I did was measure Friday’s snowfall and it was only 1.8”. Maybe it settled some, but it shouldn’t have melted. It was a very wet snow ranging from 0.34” to 0.41” liquid from 4 core samples and around 0.38” from the gauge catch. Also a bit of sleet and zr as well.
