    Alberto remnants

    Around here, the Fox Valley looks to get a soaking over the next few hours. Doesn’t look to budge much. Those of us sandwiched between the light rain of the main circulation and the heavier stuff may not see much after all.

    April 2018 General Discussion

    Found this interesting for Chicago... The city’s last subfreezing high this year was 27 degrees logged on February 12 and despite our backwards spring, every day since then has topped the freezing mark. Checking temperature records back to 1871, Chicago climatologist Frank Wachowski informed us that the city’s average date for the last subfreezing high is March 15. If the February 12 date holds, it will be more than a month earlier than the long-term average and the city’s third earliest on record-trailing only February 7, 1976 (28 degrees) and February 10, 1878(30 degrees). http://wgntv.com/2018/04/20/does-feb-12-2018-approach-a-record-for-the-earliest-last-sub-freezing-high/

    April 8th-9th "winter" storm?

    Surprisingly over 2” of pretty fluffy stuff so far clinging to every tree branch. Hope the warmth at the end of the week pans out.

    Inch and a half, maybe 2 fell today. Really came down. Gotta love March convective snow showers.

    Downtown Chicago catching some blues. It’s puking snow right now.

    Freshly snowblown to give you an idea of what we have OTG

    Checking in with 6” here, radar and models look good for a few more later and over the weekend. Pretty scene out there.

    Quick peek at radar... the firehose is setting up, taking aim at the metro. It’s go time, let’s see how it produces.

    Loop the latest HRRR simulated reflectivity... the current band lifting north through WI will eventually weaken. This still has plenty of tricks up its sleeve.

    Nice looking band through Madtown and much of southern WI. Everyone’s so quick to write this off... I still think we see some additional development as this progresses east and more moisture gets involved. Trends aren’t great right now, but models can’t be THAT far off... or could they?

    Bout an inch so far, radar returns looking pretty tasty to the west. I still like where I sit.

    Have not seen the 12-18'er. Seems confusing to have two different maps for two time periods out there, at least confusing to the public.

    100% agreed on the impressive junk. It's looking more and more like a 1-2 punch.
