|"I love it when a band comes together!"|
These bands typically move around a bit, pulsate, and sometimes feature two or more embedded high-intensity bands. This morning we were just south of the strongest snowfall, but it moved over us and might actually be just to our south at the moment. In the image above, our observing sites are indicated by red squares and we were right in the center of the action. Total snowfall in past 3 hours (from 1200-1500 UTC) of 4 inches, most falling in 2.5 hours. It was all low-density snow with a water content of perhaps 4%.
|Looks like about 10 cm/4 inches if one accounts for the effects of wind on accumulation around the stick|
