First Accumulating Snow

Last night, we were treated with our first accumulating snow.  A weak system flew through the area during the evening hours, and around 8:00 p.m., we experienced light (moderate at times) snowfall.  It was enough to cover the cars and mostly cover the grass.  I was able to get outside after it stopped to measure how much had fallen.  Officially, we had 0.2" here, and 0.3" at school in Auxvasse.

Keep your eye on the graphic in the sidebar to the right.  I put the snow forecast graphic from the STL NWS office.  They update it a few times a day during active weather.  It does look like the low is going to track right in our back yard, successfully squelching any chances for a big snow event here.  For some good reading in the next few days, though, keep these blogs in your tabbed windows!  Our friends in Wisconsin are going to get a nice storm!

Very nice, WxWatcher. Only a couple days after us. I enjoyed woveling this morning... looking forward to woveling the 10" expected by Wednesday morning! But, first, Packers vs Ravens tonight. It will most likely not snow tonight, but things will be white. Go Pack! :)

I may have to watch the game in honor of the WI snow event ahead of you.

Dust off the chook, polish up that wovel!

Nice, WxWatcher. Glad we all got our first accumulating snow!

I'll luckily have a snowblower to blow the hopefully 8-12" of snow here.

haha, my chook has been out since late September. :)

There was no snow in Geebs last night. The further north we went there was less snow.
