Here is a video update on the weather moving in for the end of the week. Still looking like a mixed bag of precipitation with a threat of rain, freezing rain or drizzle on Wednesday night into Thursday with a change over to snow sometime Thursday and snow showers continuing through Friday. There will likely be breaks in the precipitation especially Thursday afternoon. Blowing snow and dangerous wind chills are also likely Friday into the weekend.

Snowfall Predictions vs. Actual (12-11-2010)

Just wanted to post a quick blog about my snowfall prediction on Saturday morning. Of course this system did change drastically from late Friday night into Saturday but I had a pretty good handle on the snowfall totals from my map on Saturday.  The only issue was that the system slowed down just a little more than expected which brought 6+ snow totals into portions of eastern South Dakota.
