Lake effect rain streaming in from the north has been heavy at times this morning.  Temps should hover around 40 most of the day before rain mixes with, then changes over to snow showers this evening.  Not expecting much, but these little early events always seem to over achieve in a few spots.  Wouldn't be surprised to wake up to a little white otg in the morning and again Saturday. Leaves are 60% down.

Almost looks like Owl Head outside of Lake Placid but not sure.  Where were you?

I did the Gothics loop. Doing all 46 high peaks up there, at 19/46 so far. This is from someone else in the dacks from a 46er page I follow. I went on Monday which was terrible weather, but Fri-Sunday were perfect conditions.

My friend said it was hailing decently in Glendale Heights. I don't know a whole lot about how this stuff works, so don't bake me for my speculation, but do the relatively cool temperatures impact how easy it is for updrafts to generate hail?

The fact that the hail growth zone (-10C to -30C) is closer to the ground and surface temps aren't all that warm help it reach the ground.

Nice forecast profile from the 3km NAM, showing the steep surface to mid-level lapse rates. Not a ton of CAPE but it was obviously more than enough for the heavy showers and isolated storms this afternoon.

Congrats bo. Can’t say I’m not jealous

central mn might see some flakes mix in tomorrow night

At 30, the first snow still makes me feel like a kid.  I'm just glad it isn't here to stay.  :lol:

Man, and you go through the shortest length of time between last and first snowfalls of anyone.

Congrats on your first snow of the season!

We are the same age and I feel the same way. Staring out the window is better then any other form of entertainment

Quite the LER band ongoing across SW MI and NW IN.

Several lightning strikes with some of the stronger convective cells within the band.

Some clouds kept our temp in the 40s into the early morning hours.  We were able to fall to the mid 30s by morning.  The always-colder-than-surrounding-stations Cedar Rapids airport hit 31º.

It is actually possible that the next 2 weeks will be more boring than the past couple.  Can't we get some tropical remnants or something?
