8 MAR Verification

We are verifying the snow that occurred on Sunday morning around 4am-5am. The accumulation we received was around 0.1inch in West Lafayette, otherwise moderate dusting. We did expect snow flurries Saturday night into Sunday morning, due to the backside of the low pressure system. We looked to see if there was any QG forcing to accompany the snow that occurred. On the first figure we do see some WAA in our area. Also looking at the second picture we see a PVA max over our area. These were obtained from the 08Z ruc2 run.
