Snow totals from Thursday night; more is on the way

Here's a list of snow totals that have come into the 27 Weather Center but more is to come.

(WKOW) -- Last night our latest system began to bring us snow, but we are not out of the woods when it comes to snow chances ... not only for the winter season but from this system.

This low is pushing slowly southeast/east meaning moisture that is to our north has to move south and fall overhead in doing so. Already though, places across the forecast area have reported a few inches of snow. Here's a list of just some of the totals coming in.

If you have a snow total amount you'd like to submit to the 27 meteorologists so they can pass it on to the National Weather Service, here's the proper way to take an accurate snow reading.

Take a ruler to an area of snow that hasn't been stepped on or looks to be an area where drifting occurs. Take the ruler and put it in the snow in several places. Check to see where the snow measures each time and take the average. A photo will help as well and an estimated time of when the reading was taken.

But we're not out of the woods when it comes to snow not only from winter but with this system too. Since this system is pushing south/southeast, moisture that's too our north will be moving through the forecast area throughout the rest of Friday night through early Saturday morning.

The moisture will begin to move in beginning in evening and will continue to push south through the overnight hours going into Saturday. The snow will then become light, scattered and flurry like through the early morning hours. By the mid to late morning, the bulk of the moisture will have been moved to our south and scattered flurries will be left.
