12/8/09 Winter storm: 1.2″ snowfall since midnight at my house

Filed under: General Weather & Forecasting,chase mode updates — Mike U @ 5:41 am

I woke up at about 4:20am to find 1.2″ of new snowfall since midnight at my house which is 5 N downtown Dodge City.  Looking at radar, it appears most of this fell in the 2-3am hour as a healthy east-west band of 24-28dbz echoes moved northeast through Ford County.  The 3-5″ forecast still looks to be on track as some good looking radar echoes are still coming up from the southwest all the way back to Guymon, OK.  Dry intrusion appears to be showing up, though, southwest of Guymon into most of the Texas Panhandle, which is a bit worrisome for later in the morning.  Hopefully that will not shift north very much… and there is hope that it will not based on the track of the mid-level vorticity max as mentioned in the previous post.  Will take a look at the latest RUC progs here in a bit.
