Snow, snow, snow!
Good Friday night in the big town,
It is snowing! That's right, go look outside it might not last too long, but the next two or three hours we should see our first snowflakes of the season!
I just thought I would let you know. I haven't seen one yet, but they are heading towards the city from the north. I am heading outside in a few minutes.

Hey Gary. We've got a few snowflakes and some sleet in Gladstone. I was so excited after watching your winter forecast. I can't wait to see how it all plays out!

My husband just took the dogs out and came in to tell us that it was snowing. We are at 159th and Metcalf. Heard you say that we would see snow tonight and you were right as usual.

Ok..Gary..you showed your forecast, here is the details for the SMCv.2
5-Oct Cold Blast
13-Oct Cold Blast
21-Oct Cold Blast
30-Oct Cold Blast
5-Nov Missed Trough-though see Nov. 3rd blog entry
15-Nov Cold Blast/Snow - Projected
Wow...look at that GFS about 108 hrs out...fabulous.
Ok...here is the cycle. Every five days, normally oscillating between Canadian push and Pacific trough. So far so good. If you are so inclined, check the maps for the days above. I have done so via blog entries. I don't have all the science behind this pattern, but I do see a definite trend thus far.
So...15th, snow...20th should be something and the 25th and on and on, every 5-6 days. The only glitch could be if we get the same type of action as early Oct where we had an odd day mixed in...I haven't seen that repeat yet.
Its clockwork...tick tock.

We were at Legends around 8:00 this evening and saw quite a few tiny snowflakes. The kids were so excited! Then we got home to Leavenworth and it was just misting. Sigh. We're so looking forward to the snow this winter.

Oh No. I missed the snow. If memory serves me today would have been Windy's birthday. It's my mom's birthday today so that is how I remember it. I hope you were able to look back on some found memories....especially with some snow tonight.

It was snowing in Gladstone at 9:00!!!! I thought it was leaves from the trees until I investigated further!!...So exciting!!! But certainly, it DID snow tonight!!

What is causing the snow tonight
A storm system in the upper levels intensified near Wichita tonight and it created just enough lifting to get some snow.

Brrrr. No snow down here in Emporia but it was very cold.

Are you liking what the new data is saying about this Tues/Wed storm? What are your thoughts on it?
I WANT SNOW.
The trend is good for Wednesday's storm, but will it be cold enough. Let's see if the trend continues.

WOW! I just looked at the new data, is it saying what i think it is?
We will need it to form faster! I am concerned.
