12pm Weather Update - Talking Snow

Let’s get a little more in to the snow discussion.  Specifically, how much and for who.  I’ve put together a matrix of cities and various computer models’ snow output.

To begin with, here is the 12z snow accumulation projection from the high resolution RPM forecast model.  The model run covers snow through 6am CT Saturday.
(Click the image to see larger version.)

Heaviest snows will fall from southern Nebraska, central Iowa, southern Wisconsin and northern Michigan.

Now to the matrix.  These are for various locations across the Midwest.
