I know it has snowed here in June before, I haven’t witnessed it. I’ve seen graupel a few times. Accumulating snow in May seems pretty frequent tho. 

Last year I drove back from a final during the beginning of May...it was snowing hard and we ended up with 8 inches on the ground in Laurium. I think that was like May 8.

How much left on the ground there? Technically, graupel is snow. Latest I've ever seen snowflakes down here is May 20, 2002, earliest is October 12, 2006.

I did not know that.

On average 20 inches of glacier pack is left.  A little more/less in some spots.

We had a lot of graupel showers here on Thursday afternoon. They always remind me of dippin dots lol. Mlive posted an article about it, and I too did not realize what it was until they posted this. We ended up having regular snowflakes Thursday evening so there was still "real" snow lol, but now next time I see Fall or Spring graupel I will know that that technically is snow, unlike sleet or hail (even though sleet or even hail technically counts in the snow column of weather records).

Since I'm less seasoned in winter weather, what do the odds of snow look like for Northern Ohio? I have people going nuts thinking a blizzard is coming in 48-72 hrs.

I was checking and current snow depths in the upper peninsula, and snow is for the most part gone except in the higher elevations.   And those same elevations will jackpot this storm.

Pretty much gone here in Hancock except for bigger piles from plowing, blowing snow, or scooped off roofs. Twin Lakes on the other hand still has quite of bit but there is some bare ground showing where it isn't shaded by trees. My fathers driveway is pretty much melted off except in front of the garage and that is pure ice.

The difference between there and here (I live in Laurium) is shocking. We still have a good 20-30 inches of snowcover all over.

Been MIA for awhile, lots of non COVID related stuff happening in life for me lately. 

Have had steady light snow this morning, nothing heavy besides a few bouts of bigger fluffy flakes but we've accumulated a 1/2" on the deck and grassy surfaces. Helping refresh my nearly melted driveway piles. The metro reached 60 yesterday and we've had some warmer days this spring then the past few years so soil temperatures are running in the mid 40s. I think my backyard will be 20-ish miles northwest of the heavier bands, already been missed to the south by better returns this morning. The Minnesota River seems to be the dividing line. 

The GFS really whiffed one this one with its southern solution. At least the 3k NAM picked up on the trends as soon as it got into range. Hoping for 4-6" IMBY. Could be our 3rd year in a row with a 6" storm in April. I think someone between Red Wing and Rochester will pick up 12" 

Can't wait to see those 3' totals up by you Bo.

This is getting ridiculous. 4 feet?  I'm starting to worry about possible roof issues.

Snow has started

Just now, HighTechEE said:

Has the first PDS this year been issued for the gulf coast states?

I was wondering about that too. Could this also be the year’s first high risk if one’s issued?

18z NAM (and other models) continues to pick up on a lake enhanced band of snow as the storm departs. This run NAM goes nuts with 3.5' of snow. Will be interesting to see hi-res models this evening.

To my knowledge, yes.

EDIT: Come to think of it, a PDS watch might have been issued on 3/28 in IL/IA/MO.
