Another Round of Snow

A quick moving upper level shortwave disturbance moving in from the northwest, in combination with a strong upper level jet stream, resulted in a prolonged light to moderate snow event across much of South Central Nebraska on Thursday, Dec. 8, 2011. Although the highest amounts were only in the 3-4 inch range and targeted areas near and north of Interstate 80, these amounts ended up being about twice as much as originally forecast. North Central Kansas largely missed out on the snow, with most places barely reporting a dusting. This snow event, combined with the first widespread snowfall of the season that occurred several days earlier on Dec. 3, left much of South Central Nebraska under 5-7 inches of total snow cover.
