    I know some models had a strip of freezing rain near the front edge.  Let us know when it changes to snow.

    It is switching to snow right now.

    This snow will have trouble sticking to the wet, dark pavement, but there is still a solid glaze of ice over the snowpack and patio, so I'll measure there.

    Have to admit I am skeptical of some snow event lasting 60hrs. And the NAM at this range whatever it shows is toss worthy.

    I'm sure there will be some breaks.  Other models are showing a decent break after the initial wave.  Plus, the rotating spokes of energy will probably have dry moats mixed in.

  3. At the end of the NAM run, there is still solid snow falling from Cedar Rapids to Chicago/Milwaukee.

    The last snow system lasted four hours.  This week's event has the potential to last 60 hours.  Now, if we could just pair the 1"/hr rates from the last event with the 48+ hour duration of this one, we'd really have something.
