April Snow For Northern Plains

Large surface cyclone that was associated with severe storms in Plains yesterday and in Southeast today is currently centered over northwest Missouri. The system has a narrow north-to-south band of snow associated with it that extends from the eastern Dakotas across eastern Nebraska, as shown on the surface plot, at bottom, from this afternoon (15 April 2011). The two images at top are from Forestburg and Kimball, South Dakota is morning.
No weather out here today, although strong winds the last two days left skies this morning a bit dirty with suspended dust - see below. Low this morning was 38F and current temperature at airport is 85F - so another day with big diurnal temperature swing.
