Well although this isn't snow, my area did see sleet mixed with rain yesterday so it's the first wintry type weather we've seen so far, but I'm still waiting for that first snowflake to fall.

There was a lake effect snow shower just to my north. It disappated as it drifted southward towards me.

November 19. It looks like a system with a colder air mass may reach the Great Lakes between November 18-21.

(On statistical average, the first flakes fall in Monroe, MI on November 11.)

I thought that was the light snow/snow shower icon, and the one with 3 coming out of the cloud and 2 below them was the "snow" icon... Maybe I'm just thinking of the XL icons set...

BTW, I still say November 19, because one of my local mets said: "An accumulating snow could be possible a few days before Thanksgiving. I'll talk about it more when the time gets closer."

I checked accuweather and snow is in the forecast from Nov 19-Nov 21.

TWC reduced the icon to 2 by 1 flakes

video here (Fall River's conditions) and light snow for providence/new bedford

Fall River, MA Reports Moderate Snowfall


i missed the Rain/Sleet icon over Albany around 8am but i'll catch it when it appears soon.

the other video of hartford's conditions shows the Snow/Wind icon

Hartford, CT Reports Heavy Snowfall with Windy Conditions

Hopefully by the end of this year, even if it is the form of sleet.
