Heavy hourly snowfall
« on: December 16, 2017, 12:49:57 AM »
Not sure if any of you read about this. But it was quite an week  just  down the highway from me

https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/weather/2017/12/08/alaska-just-reported-one-of-the-most-extreme-snowfall-rates-on-record-10-inches-per-hour/

 That area  has been  full of studies for heavy snow fall in the past.

Ok Brian was an slow day I guess for  lower 48 to have an article on Alaskan weather. They generally  don't write articles about us up here unless it has to do something  for the green movement.

 at the  10 mark it was 25.4 CM, in 24 hours 101.6 cm and  by the end of the snow fall 198.12 cm had fallen. Understand where you are coming from  as I read stuff in meterics.  Only thing  going here for me in engineering  some of the  reading  we took where in mm in overhaul work on german engines we had MAK
