12/8/09 Winter storm: Dry intrusion approaching. Ahh!!

Filed under: General Weather & Forecasting,chase mode updates — Mike U @ 7:12 am

Well it is inevitable.  The dry intrusion is approaching.  It is through Liberal.  Just ahead of it, though, snow is moderate.  Another burst of snow may occur around midday as the main vorticity max (red “X” in the image below) passes just to the south of Dodge City, however I’m not holding much hope out of that.  It looks like another quarter inch of accumulation has occurred since I went out and measured at 4:30.  I’ll take my official CoCoRaHS measurement at 7:00am.  I think 2-3″ is all we will get for a storm total here in Dodge.  There is no escaping the dry intrusion.
