  1. CMH picked up 1.2" over a 5 day span (3/13-3/17) bringing the 2016-17 total to 9.3", which is still 8th least all-time. Barring a huge cold snap and perfect setup, I don't see anymore snowfall for the season. 1.) 1918-19: 3.2" 2.) 1878-79: 4.3" 3.) 1941-42: 4.9" 4.) 1931-32: 5.3" 5.) 1949-50: 6.5" 6.) 1996-97: 7.7" 7.) 1934-35: 8.0" 2016-17: 9.3" 8.) 2001-02: 10.1" 9.) 1896-97: 10.3" 1997-98: 10.3"
  2. First above average temp day at CMH since March 9th; a stretch of 11 days which is the longest below average period since mid-May 2016.
  3. My parents measured 4" in the western Youngstown area, but it sounds like it was very hit/miss around the area. Further south and east of the city picked up only 1".
  4. Maxed out at 42F IMBY today, actually didn't feel too bad. Currently 31F and it's been lightly snowing small flakes for about 90 minutes. Not sticking to concrete or pavement but there is a light dusting on the grass.
  5. I think you have your months/seasons backwards or I wasn't clear with my dates. The Blizzard of 1996 was in January and I have 24.5" for January '96 monthly total. I have 54.1" for the whole season November 1995 to April 1996.
  6. With today's snow chances plummeting for CMH, I decided to pull historical figures to see where 2016-17 will stand for snow. Currently at 8.1" for the season. 1-2" is in the forecast, but that is likely to bust. This season would stand a 8th least snowfall if it were to end today. Looks like we have a good chance to finish in the Top 10. Here is the list: 1.) 1918-19: 3.2" 2.) 1878-79: 4.3" 3.) 1941-42: 4.9" 4.) 1931-32: 5.3" 5.) 1949-50: 6.5" 6.) 1996-97: 7.7" 7.) 1934-35: 8.0" 2016-17: 8.1" 8.) 2001-02: 10.1" 9.) 1896-97: 10.3" 1997-98: 10.3"
  7. In a way, I'm glad this will be the case; it can capture the true futility of this winter. There is no doubt that '16-'17 is worse than '15-'16, which most people, including myself, said couldn't be/likely wasn't possible. No doubt last year was bad, but we managed to nickel and dime to the max to hit 17.1" at CMH, which will double this year's total.
  8. Things are not shaping up well for Central Ohio. I was never too concerned about any temp issues, but moreso about the amount of QPF. Models have trended drier, especially for us. HRRR has been completely skipping I-71 from Cincy up to Cbus the past few runs.
  9. Yes, but we get some evaporative cooling and it does snow. Two things restricting us: borderline temps and the heaviest QPF is staying to the west, north, and east of us. The lake effect/enhanced being thrown back into Wisconsin and Illinois is becoming pretty pronounced and impressive too.
  10. December or January? Yes please. March? Pass 10/10 times. Euro not as daunting as the GFS.
  11. Looking long term, there is no sign of a sustained ridge to welcome in Spring. Below average Marches are the worst IMO. 2016 was above average, but 2013, 2014, and 2015 were all below average with late springs. Yes, it is a transitional month for most of the sub, but average highs for CMH are approaching the 50s now and I'm ready to move on.
  12. GFS still out on an island, all alone for a good OV hit for Monday/Tuesday.
  13. Models kept waffling back and forth south of I-80. It looked like a last minute whiff, but my parents in Youngstown picked up a nice 4".
  14. Yep, I lived in Little Turtle prior to moving downtown.
  15. Eerily familiar looking picture. This was around the corner from my house during the June 29, 2012 derecho. Winds weren't too bad around here, gusts between 47 and 49 MPH at the observing airports in the county. Youngstown, however, did record a 70mph gust last night. Quite impressive.
