They’re getting pounded. Read their AFD and they had the highest amounts in the south metro KC, but looks like the entire metro is getting slammed.

ILX late morning update

 

 

 

Latest HREF guidance continues to support high probabilities of
snowfall rates of 1-2 inches per hour late morning through
afternoon, roughly along a Pittsfield to Bloomington line. West
central Illinois may see 2+" rates around midday.

No changes were made to the headlines or snow amounts at this
time

Monday: 8" still looking good

Tuesday: Lock for 6"

Wednesday: I'll take my 4" and run

Gameday: can i just get an inch or two of wind blown paste to cover wretched snow piles.

No flakes yet in Peoria, IL. Rain has soaked into the ground for the most part, and I don't think we got anything in the way of ice (or at least, I don't see anything now). The winter storm warning still calls for 5-9" (since ILX didn't update it, as noted previously), but I've been entertained by seeing other site forecasts jumping around from 8" to 3" to 6" just in the past 10 hours. Meanwhile, I'm seeing people predictably complain about school being cancelled, since nothing's happened yet, even though anyone paying attention knew there would be a morning lull  (though, I think most did think we'd be seeing snow by 10am).

Watching the radar it looks like you guys are going to get rocked. What you get looks to be about what I get, keep us updated

I’m not a 100% sure it’s a good thing or not

Yeah the cold has good and bad parts.  Can help with better ratios (more to it than just that) but then there is dry air.

I think your area is sitting really good.  I am a bit more on the north fringes so I am liking the slight nudge north with 12Z run.

It will be clear where the main band is going to set in a couple hours for us as the precip in IL moves into MI.

Liking the odds for 8" here in Toronto. Not too concerned with precip type here - FROPA moved in sooner than solutions that had a delayed changeover (eg RGEM)

Wouldn't rule out a run at 10"

Agreed Toronto is looking good! :snowing:
