Surprise Snowfall

A trace to less than one of snow was predicted for Friday morning (3/8/24) but Exeter residents were surprised to find close to six inches of snow had fallen when all was said and done.  The snow started overnight with freezing rain and then a heavy wet snow continued to fall until mid day.  Six to seven miles south of Exeter only saw a dusting, Fairmont reported four inches and there were other pockets of large snowfall.  Plymouth recorded 10" while Fairbury only received a dusting.  Out west there were reports of up to 19" of snow in places near North Platte.  While the streets had to be plowed and downtown sidewalks scooped, many residents had no need of shoveling as temperatures were predicted to be 70 degrees by Sunday.
