Looks like an inch on the grass type of an event tomorrow afternoon/evening.  As expected the NAMs have slowly reduced QPF in the final hours leading up to the event per usual this season.  An uptick in QPF on the guidance in the final 12hrs before the event would be more surprising than waking up tomorrow to see that covid 19 has vanished overnight across the globe.

21 degrees rt now. Snow coming this evening, a nice little distraction 

yup. Although I'd prefer a ring of fire pattern with 65 degree dews and evening grill outs at this point.

Hopefully winter's last hurrah tonight.  Maybe a couple of stat padding slushy inches.

Another 2" will put us above 55" for the winter making it the snowiest winter at YYZ since 08-09 lol. Pretty sad if you think about it.

Hopefully it's the last. I'm ready for Spring.

I should get into the snow, but up here I'm only expecting a couple tenths on the grass, if we get any accumulation.  We have climbed into the mid to upper 30s, so the timing is not ideal.

Just starting to whiten here a little bit.  When rates aren't great, getting past peak heating is your friend at this time of year so I imagine the accumulation efficiency will improve an hour or two before sunset.

Pixie dust has commenced, with a temp at 36.

There have been several reports of 1/2 mile or less vis in snow in southern/southeast Iowa the past few hours, so it may rip for awhile.  Looks like 1.5-2" on the grass on the way.

Gonna have to revise the above to maybe a few tenths if we can get snow to fall after sundown.  The ground is now all wet so it would take a decent period of +SN to get a dusting during the daylight.  Barely snowing atm.  On the plus side at least it snowed during the day while I was off work.

Anything on the grass yet?

No issues sticking to the grass here. And other elevated surfaces as well. Got 1/2 inch on my grill so far. We've been in the better banding though. Nice steady snow continues...

Nice.  I must have jinxed us here, as I started taking a time lapse before it started lol.

Looks like a lock for 1-3” around here.

Snow started a short time ago, and already whitening up the grass.

lol, possibly you did. I don't know if it helped, but temps didn't get as high here as was forecasted, before the snow started. Yesterday was a solid underachiever as well. Of course pretty consistent good rates here, doing some work...

Just measured 1.5" on one of my patio chairs. Where are the warnings?!?

Already 2-3” reports just south of I-80, in the vicinity of Joliet.

That area will likely over-perform in the 3-5” range, given what’s left to go. 1-3” area wide still looks good outside of that area.
