   1      2200 hrs.    0.1   T  21.3 F  Snow is sticking as it falls on the cold cement walks and street. The street is now white.
   2      2300 hrs.   0.3  0.02  19.9   Very light fine snow from 2200 to 2300. Snow is also low in water content about a 15 to 1 ratio. Snow crystals show moderate riming many are broken and irregular
   3      2400 hrs.   0.5  0.03  19.6   Very fine light snow continued at about a constant rate most of the past hour. Near the end of the hour a few stellar crystals and spatial dendrites were mixed in with some broken crystals. You can see these crystals sparkle in the flood light on the snowboard.

 0.8  0.04  19.6  Just after the last observations we had the first aggregates of crystals. They were mixed with a few stellar crystals, spatial dendrites and few particles with enough riming to resemble snow pellets. The aggregates continued through past hour you can see this on the snowboard as the surface isn't as even as last hour. The snowfall rate increased to almost moderate at times during this hour. During the last ten minutes there were fewer aggregate flakes and many more well formed pretty stellar crystals, spatial dendrites.
   5      0200 hrs.   0.9  0.06  19.8  The snowfall rate decreased the first 15 minutes of the hour they increased again but the rate is still a light snow. There are aggregate flakes and some well formed pretty stellar crystals and dendrites.
   6      0300 hrs.   1.1  0.07  20.2   Larger aggregates of crystals this hour but the rate is still light. This will be the last observation tonight as the rate should be even less the next hour as the radar shows a decrease in precipitation to our west now.
   7      0730 hrs.   1.2  0.08  20.3   Light snow and flurries continued until 0430 before ending all of which gave an additional 0.1 inches of snow.  Click Here - Time Lapse Movie of the Snow - Give it time to load
