   0     1940 hrs.   0.0  0.00  33.8  The first flakes of snow of the season. The dew point was at a low of 17 F before the snow and the radar showed snow over our station about 1715 but it was evaporating as it fell and didn't reach ground level until now. So it took about 2.5 hours to bring the humidity and dew point up enough it didn't evaporate. The dew point was about 27 F when the snow started to make it to the ground.
