HRRR says it should be puking snow around 8 PM. Temps above freezing throughout the event. Most models indicate 1-2" of snow.

Transitioned to snow, but it's mainly a maybe 20-mile wide band of heavy precip and then more showery stuff.

You know it's about to be squall city tonight when a shower outside my window looks like a ominous, squally wall-cloud.

Boring so far, but I enjoyed tonights soundings.

OUN's temp profile in the lowest 3km was superadiabatic/absolutely unstable

Getting moderate snow right now with some wind. Then again it's been windy all day.

Snow is just now dying down. Looked outside and there's barely a dusting on the ground... stupid soil temps.

We recorded a 23 MPH wind gust and ~5 degree temp drop with the "squall".

Interesting stuff on our weather station observations. You can see we've had peaks of sun all day, then it got really cloudy when the snow arrived, and then you can see the temp/dew point meet when the environment became almost fully saturated. But immediately after the snow, the sun came out which made the dew point plummet.

Also was a pretty windy day... it felt terrible after how many warm days we've had.

I also got a piece of that squall. It was a nice burst of heavy snow that only amounted to a dusting on the grass before melting when the sun came back out. I think the the dew point plummeted afterwards because it was actually a frontal feature with a cooler and drier air mass filtering in, but sunshine definitely helped.

Still a neat feature, since I saw it coming I was able to bundle up and walk around campus while it happened. There were a bunch of unhappy faces of people unprepared for being snow pelletted in the face cool.gif

All model guidance is just that, guidance. It is the responsibility of the forecaster to take that information, make it better, and to appropriately communicate the forecast to the users.

Fervent supporter of the idea to make GFS output beyond hour 168 proprietary! Anyone wanting to post/share/tweet/etc GFS output beyond day 7 should have 1) a limited set of graphics available with the option to 2) contribute a nominal fee to get a full suite of products while improving future GFS output. #EURObusinessfor-the-win

Yeah today reassured me that I'm over winter. It's too late in the season that, even if we get a good snow, it's not going to be around long anyway. Way too easy for temps to be above freezing now. And I feel like the soil temps would eat away at a good amount of the snow.
