...EXTREMELY RARE SNOW EVENT ACROSS THE DESERT SOUTHWEST...

AN UNUSUAL COMBINATION OF SUBTROPICAL MOISTURE AND COLD...
NORTHERLY...LOW LEVEL AIR HAS PRODUCED A RARE SNOWSTORM ACROSS THE
LOWER ELEVATIONS OF THE MOHAVE DESERT...INCLUDING THE LAS VEGAS
VALLEY. THIS SNOWSTORM WILL PRODUCE SIGNIFICANT IMPACTS TO THE LAS

INCLUDING THE LAS VEGAS STRIP. HIGHER AMOUNTS ARE POSSIBLE...
PARTICULARLY ACROSS THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF THE VALLEY WHERE TOTAL
ACCUMULATIONS OF UP TO 10 INCHES ARE FORECAST.

THE SNOW BEGAN TO FALL ACROSS MUCH OF THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY EARLY
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND WILL CONTINUE THROUGHOUT THE OVERNIGHT
HOURS. THIS WILL LIKELY BE THE BIGGEST SNOWSTORM TO IMPACT LAS VEGAS
SINCE 1979...WHEN 7.8 INCHES OF SNOW WAS MEASURED AT MCCARRAN
INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT.

SNOW REMOVAL EQUIPMENT IS EXTREMELY LIMITED IN THE LAS VEGAS VALLEY
AND THE EFFECTS FROM THIS STORM WILL LIKELY LINGER INTO THURSDAY.
TEMPERATURES QUICKLY REBOUND IN MANY INSTANCES FOLLOWING SNOW IN THE
LOWER DESERTS. THIS WILL NOT BE THE CASE ON THURSDAY...AS THE
TEMPERATURE WILL NOT CLIMB OUT OF THE 30S.

ELSEWHERE ACROSS THE LOWER DESERTS...ABOVE 2000 FEET...SNOWFALL OF 6
TO 18 INCHES IS EXPECTED. FOR ADDITIONAL DETAILS PLEASE SEE THE
LATEST WINTER STORM WARNING /RNOWSWVEF/.

I lived in MN, ND, AK, and IA for a number of years. 7-11 inches is like a
normal snowfall, unless you have extreme winds and/or temperatures.

Minneapolis may be drier than you suspect. It averages 45 inches of
snow per season (which would be approx 4-5 inches of rain) and they get
only one snowstorm on average per season over 6". It colder than hell
but not that snowy compared to cities downwind of the Great lakes.

I moved from Minneapolis in 1987, so things may have changed. It didn't
snow all that much, but once it got to November, whatever snow fell stayed
on the ground until March or so. There were huge piles of snow on the
sides of the roads from the plowing.

Brutal cold is right. One winter (84 or 85) we had 12 straight days where
the temperature never got above 0. (Not your zero Fell & Chris)

It's -5 right now and the snow started about 7:30 this morning. Downtown
Toronto has almost an inch on the ground.

It's not too bad here either. I always thought that -5 was -5 no matter
where you were.

-5C is 23F. It's 29F here now, which is great. Err, I mean, except the
foot of snow that has drifted up to 2.5-3 feet in some places. Gotta go,
we can almost open up the side door now!

I'll call, but I came in weak and there'll be a side pot...

THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR HEAVY SNOW FRIDAY INTO FRIDAY NIGHT FOR
ALL OF SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND AND PERHAPS INTO SATURDAY FOR SOME

AT THIS TIME...IT LOOKS AS THOUGH MOST OF SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND HAS
THE POTENTIAL TO SEE 6 TO 12 INCHES OF SNOWFALL BY MIDNIGHT FRIDAY
NIGHT. MARTHAS VINEYARD...NANTUCKET...BLOCK ISLAND...AND PERHAPS EVEN
CAPE COD MAY SEE RAIN AND SLEET MIX IN WITH THE SNOW FROM TIME TO
TIME LATE FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND EVENING. THIS COULD CUT DOWN ON SNOW
ACCUMULATIONS THERE.

I figured it must be, we haven't been able to see more than 1/4 mile out of
my bedroom window for two days now, and usually we can see the ENTIRE Valley
SE exposure from the NW. I can always see downtown, the strip, and at night
can see the lights from Boulder City.
