Back and Forth…   Really interesting what’s going on in Dodge City right now… we have gone back to a "chunky" rain.  The heavier echoes on radar are very large aggregate snowflakes which take longer to melt…thus we see it at the surface as snow… but smaller flakes do not take as much time to melt…thus we see rain.  Talk about borderline.  Winter Precipitation microphysics at its finest.
