I measured the first trace of snow back on December 1, but I'm still waiting for the first inch to truly call it the "first snow" of the season.  It may come later today from a little Alberta clipper if the snow will stick on the ground.

Thats awsome, at least your snow forecast is true :happy: unlike ours <_<, the weather forecast two days ago said that there was a chance of snow in our area next Tuesday. http://img337.imageshack.us/img337/1001/snowpossibleon120710.jpg  But it kinda dwindled away off the cast. :cry:  I wasnt surprised though,and our NWS area forecast discussion its still possibe to see some wintry precip in our area Tuesday night, so im still hoping for it to snow then, and on christmas. :happy:

It snowed briefly on Thanksgiving morning here but it melted once it hit the ground due to high ground temperatures and earlier rainfall. Other than a few flurries I don't expect any measurable snow for the next few weeks as we're in a pretty dry spell right now. The clipper that's in the forecast will miss us by the south.

If anyone guessed December 4 would be the answer for my first snowfall, then you beat my prediction of mid-December!  2.7" of snow fell from that clipper, and everything is white here.

A very interesting setup possible next weekend with a system coming through the Great Lakes. GFS says a weak disturbance, while the ECMWF predicts a major winter storm....  :thinking:

Come on...Come on...Please be right ECMWF!...

Well I busted on my thoughts of around Thanksgiving week, but we did see a rain/sleet mix right before then. There was some flurry action just to my north today, but we missed out.   :(

(Sighs) For the second time this week, I missed out on my first snowfall because it was too doggone dry!  :( Well at least some areas in the South managed to see snow today like Macon, Warner Robbins, and Montgomery so that's good.   :)

Its not the case here for being dry, but its too warm  :(

If only it was 10-15 degrees colder...
