First Measurable Snowfall of the Season for parts of South Central Nebraska

The first measurable snow of the fall occurred last night over portions of South Central Nebraska.  Widespread rain also fell over a large portion of south central Nebraska and north central Kansas overnight. This area of precipitation and snowfall occurred on the back side of a departing trough of low pressure, which swung across the region.


The image below is a visible satellite image, taken by a geostationary GOES satellite at 915 AM, on the morning of November 15th.  The snow field from freshly fallen snow appears quite well from Kearney, Buffalo, northern Adams, Hall, Sherman and Valley counties. Cooperative weather observers at Ashton and Ord reported 2 inches of snowfall, with 1.6 inches of snow reported by our COOP observer located 4 miles northeast of Kearney. An inch of snow was reported from Loup City.



The snow is also shown by our online experimental snowfall  map as depicted below:
