Remarks for the Time Period
                 
   1     2130 hrs.   T  T  25.1  The snow has just started as can be see on the sky mirror. The flakes are very small and just a very light snow flurries.
   2     2230 hrs.   T  T  23.3  Still just light snow flurries. Currently the basic snow form is broken and irregular particles and rarely seen single crystals.
   3     2330 hrs.   T  T  21.9  Snow is evaporating as it falls through this very dry air and cooling the air in the process. Still only light snow flurries and in the past 15 minutes the snow has all but stopped.
   4     2400 hrs.   0.1  0.01  21.7  The snowfall is so light and the radar shows that the next hour will have little snow also. So this will be the last observation until morning.

   8     0930 hrs.   1.4  0.13  23.3  The snow rate continues to be extremely light. Currently snow grains are falling which is the equivalent of frozen drizzle. This will end observations as no additional accumulations are expected.
