Description

This was a clipper type system so a broader band of snow but very intense snowfall rates.  I (Phil) was on mids so I woke up around noon and looked outside and could only see 1/4 mi.  That rate lasted for 2 or 3 hours in SiouxFalls.  This event was fairly well forecast by the operational models, including HiRes WRF and NMM - all predicted a band at least 48 h out.  The location was somewhat uncertain.  I believe total snowfall was generally 4-7".
