  1. February 2018 Discussion

    This morning's burst of snow surprised many around here. The locals and NWS were caught off gaurd. I finished with 1.9 inches.

    Snow is coming down hard, here. I may end up with a surprise inch.
  3. Spring 2018 Discussion

    The pattern over the next ten days should put a big dent in the drought from ne TX/e OK up through St. Louis. The TX/OK panhandle area still can't buy a drop.

    The GFS continues to be more progressive early next week. It just brings some modest rain through my area Monday and then the whole thing is gone. The Euro continues to want to hold up the front, which allows rain/ice/snow to keep going across Iowa through Wednesday.
  5. I've had my big snow board sitting on the deck up by the house when not being used. This evening, I found what appeared to be a big puddle of animal piss on it(cat?), along with some muddy paw prints. Perhaps this is a sign that the last week was winter's last hurrah?
  6. Current Snow Pack and Depths

    A couple overperformer mild days (mid 40s) is all it took to melt most of our low-moisture snow pack. We are down to an inch, maybe two, and there is a fair amount of bare ground showing in the usual spots.

    As cyclone posted, it's into the 40s here with sun and nice melting. Leading up to today, there was a lot of talk about clouds hampering today's warmup, but it has been full sun all day. We are only midway through February. Why is the February thread being filled with March heatwave talk?

    I'm at 11.2" for the month. It has been active, but no big snowfalls.
  9. If you want to live in a nickel/dimer climate, Iowa is the place to be. Over the last seven years we've had only one big snow event, the Feb 2015 Superbowl storm, which dropped 9.5" here. All other storms have been 6.2" or less. Beyond that, I've never measured a foot of snow from one storm in my entire life. It just seems to be next to impossible to get a biggie here.
  10. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    I picked up 1.3" overnight from 0.10" liquid, so the HRRR did become a bit too wet. My total for the entire series of waves is 6.1". I ended up on the edge of every wave. 6.1" is not bad, and we finally have a real snow pack for once, but it still would've been nice to get a biggie in there somewhere among the nickel/dimers.
  11. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    Snow is pretty light out this way. I think it may be difficult to get much more than an inch.
  12. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    Yeah, 1, maybe 2 if we're lucky, is my guess. It only just now started to snow very lightly.
  13. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    DVN just bumped cycloneville up to 4-6 inches.
  14. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    Radar has filled in with nice banding, but there's still nothing reaching the ground here.
  15. February 8th-11th Overrunning Event

    HRRR continues to like the band developing through the CR/IC area of east-central Iowa. I hope its right.
