  1. Got around 2" here. Pretty impressive to get accumulating snow at the lake shore on April 18th. It was even sticking to pavement during the heaviest rates.
  2. Over here in Huron, conditions are pretty similar to what Frog Town described, maybe a third of an inch per hour rates with 3/4 - 1 mile vis with S- falling. Winds are howling out of the NE with 40-45 mph gusts. Haven't been out but I have to believe the roads are brutal - our county is under a Level 3 snow advisory (meaning non-emergency travel is banned). A decent storm, sure but a bit disappointing not to get 1" + / hr. rates and 1/2 mile or below visabilities.
  3. Changed over about an hour ago and we are approaching 1 inch already. It has begun.
  4. It's been painful to watch this front try to come through. It passed by a couple hours ago and then actually turned around and went back north. Hopefully it's finally passed us for good now. Maybe we can get lucky with the second part of the storm tomorrow.
  5. 0z ukie was good for pretty much the entire state.
  6. Lake Erie is pretty much frozen now (at least the western half) so there shouldn't be much, if any enhancement. Not sure if the GFS knows that or not.
  7. Wow. Some really epic 0z model runs. Still too early to get too invested in it but you sure have to like what the models are showing.
  8. Got just under 4 inches here that got zapped by the thaw today. Starting over from zero. Hoping the upcoming clipper pattern produces.
  9. The thing that is concerning to me regarding the GFS is that all the ensemble members are well east of the operational. Don't know what the operational run is seeing that the ensembles don't but at this point I have to think the operational will cave eventually. Hope I'm wrong!
  10. Looks like European models vs. North American models on the 0z runs. Hopefully the GFS and CMC trend better on the 12z runs.
  11. Don't give up yet ... we still have the UKMET on our side!
  12. Some really impressive lakeshore flooding around western Lake Erie today. In my town the flooding is some of the worst I've ever seen. The weather is so bad even Cedar Point had to close. I can't imagine how bad this would have been if this had happened last year when the lake levels were higher.
  13. Got nothing here from the main system (all rain) but the squalls this evening gave us .3"
  14. Picked up 3.5" here. Nice little refresher snow. Hopefully can squeeze out a few more tenths before it moves out this evening.
  15. Got around 8" here. Not a bad storm but when nearly every model is showing double digit amounts less than 24 hours out, you can't help but be a little disappointed. Just couldn't avoid the dry slot. Seemed like every time snow started to really stack, another dry slot would move in.
  16. 0z GFS with another bump NW. I'm starting to really like where I'm sitting. Hopefully the rest of the 0z runs trend well.
  17. Since we're piling on to CLE tonight, I have to laugh at how they use the wording "snow showers" rather than just "snow" in their zone forecast. Man that's one helluva snow shower. Ever see a snow shower that took in four or five entire states?
  18. 18z GFS looks like it bumped slightly NW.
  19. I have to think once BGM and ALY pulled the trigger on watches, the donut hole was so glaring they felt they had to put out a headline. Pretty typical of them, being reactive rather than proactive with headlines.
  20. Yeah I thought about that but didn't want to be the one to say it
  21. Interesting, CLE electing not to go with a WSW, even with CWA's both upstream and downstream going with watches. That tells me they think this is going to be an advisory level event. Seems pretty conservative to me. I have to think at least from I-71 east a watch would be justified.
  22. 18" right on top of my location? Easy toss.
  23. Picked up about 1.2" here, nearly all falling in about 45 minutes. Models nailed this one.
