    What a nice little system. Didn’t even pay any attention to it until yesterday. Picked up some very nice rates overnight. A few totals from around the QC: Muscatine: 1.6”. MLI: 2.1”. DVN: 3.0”. Princeton 5.0”. Cambridge: 7.0” *Now Top 5 Snowiest seasons in the QC. Here’s a few picks I snapped around 4am:

    Uhm.. well hello, F-Gen band. Looks like folks a few miles on either side of the I-80 corridor has a chance to pick up a quick period of moderate to heavy snow tonight, as this compact clipper pivots across the region with some potential convective features.

    Wednesday morning may feature some pretty decent snowfall rates. Here in the QC we go from just trace amounts around midnight, to around 5 inches between midnight-6am w/ an additional inch or so after sunrise per the 00z Euro.

    Reposting because we picked up 5" of fresh pow pow, to get us within 2" of the top 5 snowiest Winters ever, and only about 12" away from the top spot with about two more systems on the way thru this weekend. Let it snow, Let it snow !

    Wow! Absolutely ripping snow right now! Easily the heaviest rates since the start of this event. Main roads quickly becoming snow covered again, and visibility is less than a 1/4 mile. This event has exceeded my expectations! This Winter is off da chain!

    This was actually after heaviest flakes move thru, by the time I got bundled up to go out to shoot! Just raining pancakes. 62E2A9F5-E6B7-4BB5-A7CE-186B90512472.MOV

    Yep, woke up and saw that first batch lifting north and got pretty nervous, but the radar has really blossomed over the past 1-2 hours. Much more optimistic for a 3"-5" event here!

    After suffering through all this winter weather recently, and sitting at 52.4" for the season, I'm all about getting a quick 17.4" more fluffy inches to have the all-time snowiest winter ever, along with the coldest temperature ever in the same season! Ha...So with that being said if we can land a quick 4-5" here, that would really help increase the chances of this actually occurring! I do like the faster start time, as models seem to have sped the system up a bit, with more of a nighttime/early Sunday morning event, locally.

    In all seriousness, it does look like a decent setup for high-end advisory/low end warning criteria event. A nice west to east slider. Of course, i'm trying to reach the top snowiest winter and record coldest temperatures record in the same season at this point

    Yep, and this tree outside my window is making all kinds of crackling noises! I just hope it stays in one piece all night! Ha

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    Impressive blowing snow this evening in the QC. Tough travel conditions along with roads becoming icy quickly after sunset. Winds gusting over 50mph at MLI, leading to numerous power outages and tree limbs down.

    Yep, had some more sleet here just a bit ago!

    Still ended up with a good 1/2"-1" of slush on the roads and parking lots! Impressive, especially with Hi-res models backing off on amounts earlier today.
