  1. Plenty of blowing and some drifting this morning. It looked like a January snowfall and felt like one too. Pretty impressive to have steady snow at 21 degrees in early November. There was about 3" down when I left for work. Tollway was pretty snowpacked the whole way to Rosemont.
  2. Sounds about right. Accumulations on the grass up to an inch or so just to set the scene. LOT has handled everything nicely.
  3. All liquid in this band up here. Plenty of trees still loaded with leaves, some still green so I’m glad October climo won this round.
  4. Really hoping for a snow globe effect while the kids trick or treat and no appreciable accumulation for that reason alone. I don't want to be losing tree limbs or being out there knocking snow off my more sensitive landscaping. These early/late season sloppy cake jobs have been commonplace the last few years up here and are a real PITA.
  5. I think there was only one year that didn't record a 90-degree day - 1875... the period of record on the table states that it goes back to 1871 for Chicago, so that would apply. Good call on 2012. Wasn't '95 a big year for 90-degree days as well?
  6. So the NAM wasn’t really out to lunch. I don’t discount its further north depictions in the mid-range, even in winter.
  7. Looks like some nice banding up towards milwaukee, glad they’re finally getting in on it
  8. Temp dropped, winds kicked up, rates picked up... finally starting to accumulate
  9. Were not seeing heavy enough rates yet to accumulate, grass is still wet and green (and getting long). Whats the deal in Milwaukee? Low dew points/dry NE winds eating away at the precip?
  10. Steady SN, good size flakes, very little wind. Should rip once the low passes to the south. Not really accumulating... yet.
  11. Not looking forward to getting outside in the middle of the night to clear off the slop from the sensitive trees/bushes. It was annoying enough during the daytime last storm. The odds of these two storms nailing the same narrow corridor in the second half of April have to be ridiculous.
  12. Trees are really weighed down, power flickering on and off, looks like about 4” so far and accumulating on everything. Roads are clearly a mess if you look at traffic on Google Maps. The models were pretty consistent for days, I’m not sure why LOT has held off.
  13. Same here. Road and driveway covered. Gotta love all the spring moisture streaming into this thing. Someone’s going to see 6” if this keeps up.
