JUST ENOUGH SNOW TO BE A NUISANCE...
A band of snow is streaking rapidly across my region causing a quick burst of accumulation and slick roads.
The snow is being caused by warmer air that is attempting to punch into the central Midwest. The period of strong lift from the warm advection should not last more than a couple hours meaning only a short duration event. The high-res 3k NAM simulated radar shows the snow here at noon.
By 6:00 in the evening it's completely gone.
In most spots the snow should not accumulate much more than an inch but radar does indicate some higher returns in localized spots that could drop up to 2" in a few locations. The NAM has this for snow totals.
The GFS is showing this for accumulations.
Needless to say none of the models are overly impressed with accumulations but based on radar trends may be a 1/2 to 1" low on amounts. To stress...this is a quick hitting event that will end from west to east from early to mid-afternoon. Just enough to be a nuisance! Roll weather...TS
