  1. Over the past 7 days, Illinois has tested 98,279 people, with 16,728 positive cases (17%). Total current rate of positive cases is at 19.5%. I don’t know if some people realize that those are 16,728 *currently* contagious/sick people. That amount of people is 40% of the capacity at Wrigley Field. And yeah, the majority of them will recover and be fine; but things are still a bit tricky right now to trust re-opening. I think it’s too easy to just pass off the daily numbers as being statistics instead of actual contagious people that could walk into a crowd & make things worse. I feel for those that want some sense of normalcy; I want it too. I feel so bad for my Greek wife who lost her big family birthday trip to Greece. And good Lord, do I miss baseball. But we need some more time distanced. Just my 2 cents.
  2. Coming down pretty great up here currently.
  3. With 2.2 inches reported at ORD as of 7am, this officially makes it the 2nd consecutive April (3.9” currently) where more snow fell than the December (2.0”) before it.
  4. Looks really great out here in the middle of nowhere/Poplar Grove.
  5. If I’m reading radar correctly, seems like it’ll just miss the Poplar Grove area by sliding more directly north than directly NE.
  6. I’m hoping that potential tornado can stay away from Poplar Grove.
  7. Whenever I want to be aggravated, I can’t help but think of the meteorologists that have been put in these situations way too often this winter. It’s tough for them to be put in a winning situation. On one hand, headlines can be issued too hastily. On the other, should a 10+ inch snowstorm shown at 48hrs actually pan out & they wait until closer to the event to issue headlines, there will be those people complaining that a proper “heads up” wasn’t given. With all that being said, the model volatility for events beyond 24hrs this season has been nothing like I can remember. Hopefully this season is just an anomaly & not the start of a “new normal” for winter seasons.
  8. I used that since ratios are supposed to be worse than 10:1. The 10:1 maps paint 14.6 for both ORD & downtown Chicago.
  9. I haven’t been paying attention to the other model runs regarding the duration, but this run has it snowing from 12z Tuesday until 00z-03z Thursday.
  10. Hmm, good call Hoosier. EDIT: ORD nets a foot of snow on this NAM run.
  11. Alek’s area hits the over on his 5.5” call and ORD gets at least 6 inches on this run.
