    Fall/Winter 2018-19 Complaint/Banter Thread

    I'm still geeking out over the fact that a wide region of the midwest saw anywhere from a 60 to 75 degree temperature swing in roughly 84 hours (give or take depending on location). How often can you say that happens, let alone experience it?

    "Consistent" EURO or GFS & friends fresh off a coup from last week? Heavy rain & thunderstorms vs ice storm IMBY? Dis gon be good...

    Mesoscale Convective Snow?

    Very good point, I have been wondering about this too. I also think its unlikely that we see areas in the "warm sector" get to or above 40 despite what the GFS suggests. One of the finer details that will become clearer as time goes on.

    Good to know. After the way last week went it may be the best to just bid time and wait til we get those fully sampled runs in.

    Has the warm air getting as far north as Flint lol. Areas south reach 40s. Wonder how radical of a temperature swing occurs if that verifies.

    Curious how the thermals play out with this one. 00z NAM/GFS get anywhere from mid 30s to low 40s up as far north as the I-80/I-90 corridor in IN/OH. Not getting too out of shape about it just yet at 96 hours, but something to watch.

    Love how you can see the affects of the banding that took place mid-way through the event in NW OH and NE IN. Great image.

    Thats awesome. Only was able to measure 32mph on my little device but that was in a subdivision, havent been ballsy enough to get out in the open with it. The rippage continues here. IWX even put out an SWS for us awhile ago advertising heavy bands and an additional 1-3, which I would say will have easily fulfilled by the time this gets over with here in the next couple hours. Haven't measured again yet but will do so before I turn in. Temp is down to 18 here with wind chills in single digits so wish me luck!

    5.5" in Columbus Grove as of now, measured from a sheltered potting bench. Possibly low balling as there are some 6" reports not far to my north, but measurement elsewhere is simply not possible. Several 18-24" drifts here which will grow even more as the defo band and winds continue into the night. Took a quick spin around the country block a couple hours ago, roads were atrocious and visibility was <300ft at times.

    KFDY METAR had a gust to 36kts awhile ago. Hardest I have seen in the area. Still complete rip city here, been sitting under a 30-40 dbz band for the last hour or so. Need to get a window to measure.

    Hindsight of course is 20/20, but a few of the 12z/18z runs (12z GFS, 12z CMC, 18z 12kNAM are the ones that appear in my head from memory) from Thursday had the setup nailed down the fairly well in IN/OH/parts of SEMI. Of course then things went down the drain at 00z that night setting up 24 hours or so of flat out mayhem. It will be interesting when this is all said and done to look back more deeply and determine what the system itself did, how it affected models in the close ranges, and if there is anything models could do to get a better grip on occurrences like this.

    Getting blasted here in Columbus Grove, OH. 30dbz snow bands training over my head. Haven't bothered measuring as I cannot find a decent enough sheltered area to attempt, but I did get some wind gusts. Clocked a high of 32mph from my bedroom window, with the entire period (3-5min) sustained around 18-20mph. Drifiting starting to get pretty significant in places. Absolute joy of a storm to watch.

    Exactly this. The defo band will likely makeup for everything ILN missed out on this morning/afternoon. Would hate to be in the areas that got really iced, only to get followed up with heavy snow AND wind as the cold air wraps around.

    Absolutely ripping here with plenty more to come over the next few hours. Northward track helped a bit but I believe yesterday's trough dig, which helped trigger the surging WAA, really made the difference out here. Brought the mix line north of Dayton to about Piqua and resulted in fantastic rates in areas further north.
