Alan-where are you? PM if you do not want to be public. I grew up in Lytton Iowa.
There are areas reporting 9 already.  Massive cut off near Owatonna MN. 5 miles south of town-snow. 2 miles south of town-nothing.
I am in east central IA ... Cedar Rapids area. Still snowing and blowing here as I write this, but the radar shows the coverage area shrinking and gradually moving east. I guess it is about time to start up the snow blower and see if it can handle this wet stuff.

Cloudy and rainy all week with no Sun until Friday.  I think I'll just stay in bed.

Banners, tags, widgets, etc. are why I have Signatures turned off.

Yesterday they said 'chance of rain, generally before 2PM' or some such words.  Not a drop.  Not a sprinkle.  About 2:15, it came down in buckets, thunder and all.

Remember Maxwell Smart on "Get Smart"? He would say, "Misssed it by that much."

They have the friggin 'S' word in our forecast for Friday night.  That after a day of 70s and possible severe storms Tuesday.

And yes, the peach tree is trying to bloom.  Not sure how that'll work out this year.

Looking back through recent official Climate Summaries, it appears December, January and March were below normal in temperature with September, November and February running above.

A inch or so right now. They are thinking about 4-5 here. More in other places. At least the sun is strong enough to melt a lot of it on the roads.

Watching my kid drive from Fargo and back in any bad weather is very stressful.

They were thinking mainly rain here: Check the forecast we had going into yesterday evening.
 
Tonight: Rain likely, possibly mixed with snow before 1am, then rain likely between 1am and 2am, then snow likely after 2am.  Cloudy, with a low around 20. Blustery, with a north northeast wind 10 to 15 mph increasing to 20 to 25 mph after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 35 mph.  Chance of precipitation is 60%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

The RAP was forecasting 3-4" snow so decided to FYI on website info blog giving heads up forecast was different from RAP.  Not sure what model the forecast was derived from. All this snow fell without any advisory or even public info statement.

Depending on where-there is between 4-8 inches. I have about 6. When the sun is out-it melts on roads that have been treated or cleared. But untreated areas and the ground see collections.

Low of 12 tonight. Wind chills around 0.  Feb 14 type weather.

not a glimpse of 40 until NEXT FRIDAY.

I am at the point where I don't really want to shovel. That and I have a torn meniscus so the neighbors and wife are doing it.

Warm ground and high sun angle did a number on our snow. Even with temps in low 20's it was melting.

Airport came in at 5 (-15C) which was a record for date. My station in town 6, while the Davis station outside town 3.
More winter weather forecast Thursday night. Whats nice this time of year snow melts fast with sun angle and ground only froze at surface.

Rather wish I had my weather station set up, but the USPS seems to have misplaced it.

Pretty chilly for this part of the country too. Low 15 at the AWOS in town; high supposed to be 60.
