A SHORT BREATHER...
The sun was out and all was right with the weather world Friday, outside of the fact it was a tad on the cold side. The storm that's produced the chill also delivered some impressive snowfall amounts across the NW half of my area. Here's a final assesment of accumulations from the Iowa Mesonet. My southeast counties were once again on the outside looking in.
The snow band shows up nicely on Friday's high resolution GOES satellite imagery.
Compare that image to the one below taken Monday
Seasonal snow totals have gone up significant in the past month NW of the Quad Cities. Here in Dubuque I've had 25.2 inches since January 18th. In just the past 8 days 16 inches have fallen. For the year I'm at 36 inches which has us above normal. These are snow totals since November 1st.
You can see NW of the Quad Cities much of Iowa now has above normal snowfall while southeast of there, significant deficits are found.
Seasonal snowfall to date around the nation looks like this.
One things for sure, it looks like the upper Midwest will be adding to their snow totals next week as a large western trough ejects energy into the Midwest. It will produce a very active mid-week period of weather with my area situated close to the southern flank of the expected heavy snow. Here's what guidance is suggesting for snowfall through next week. Lots of fun up north!
