Here are some more photos of this morning’s snowstorm. Scroll down for the most recent ones.
The radar view of the system is quite impressive. At 6:52 AM, minutes before the above video was taken, it looked a bit like some kind of lake-effect mini-hurricane:
You can view the latest radar in motion here; an archived version of the 4:13 AM to 10:40 AM loop is after the jump.
[UPDATE, 9:29 AM: From the National Weather Service:
MORE SNOW & BLOWING SNOW ON THE WAY.
A PAIR OF SYSTEMS WILL MOVE ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH EARLY TONIGHT, BRINGING MORE LAKE EFFECT SNOW TO THE AREA. AS THE SYSTEMS MOVE OVER LAKE MICHIGAN, THEY WILL PICK UP ADDITIONAL MOISTURE AND HELP ENHANCE SNOWFALL AMOUNTS. GIVEN THE RELATIVELY DRY SNOW AND BRISK CONDITIONS, BLOWING & DRIFTING SNOW CAN BE EXPECTED. THE SNOW SHOULD DIMINISH AFTERNOON THEN REDEVELOP EARLY THIS EVENING.
UPDATE, 10:55 AM: I’ve just uploaded a new version of the radar animation; it goes from 4:13 AM to 10:40 AM (instead of 2:04-8:31, as the original animation did) and really shows the whole morning storm from start to finish. Twice — at just before 7:00 and from approximately 8:00 to 8:20 — Notre Dame is in a yellow band of very heavy snow.
Be patient; the animated GIF is 1.7 MB, so it may take a while to load all 40 frames.
