Didn't see a thread for this event. Already snowing at the Youngstown Airport with visibility down to as low as one mile at times miles. Changeover wasn't expected until much later tonight, but temps have already dropped to 35 degrees.

METAR KYNG 101551Z 26007KT 3SM -RASN BKN010 OVC015 02/00 A2984 RMK AO2 PLE05SNB21 SLP112 VIS SE-W 1 CIG 008V012 P0006 T00170000

SPECI KYNG 101616Z 30007KT 3SM -SN BKN010 OVC015 02/00 A2985 RMK AO2 RAE16 VIS W 1 1/2 P0002

Precipitation rates also seem surprisingly high, 0.08" in the hour and a half since it started at YNG. If temps cool a bit, even a 10-1 ratio could have yielded close to an inch. So, although, the forecast only calls for a local one to three inch snow, there seems to be the potential for more. This snowfall seems to be possible only because Lake Erie water temperatures are currently at record high levels. NWS Buffalo reported a reading of 44 this morning, 3 degrees above the previous daily record, and a full 10 degrees above the 1927-2011 long-term mean. The lake surface is generally between 45 and 50 degrees, as of this morning -- much above the usual mid to upper 30s for early April. This could be a bad situation, with a lot of trees in bloom.
