  1. Record cold high set in South Bend...among many other locations I assume. RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE NORTHERN INDIANA 440 PM EST TUE NOV 12 2019 ...RECORD COLD HIGH TEMPERATURE SET AT SOUTH BEND... A RECORD COLD HIGH TEMPERATURE OF 24 WAS SET AT SOUTH BEND TODAY. THIS BREAKS THE OLD RECORD OF 27 SET IN 1920.
  2. Dunlap (between Goshen and Elkhart) had a report of 18 inches. I think that's the jackpot for Indiana for the event. I don't know of a time a lake effect event crushed Elkhart County like this. I ended with 6.4".
  3. Sitting between bands now. The secondary band in Western St. Joseph County is very intense. I wonder if that will become the dominant band and move East. Dynamics must be incredible for lake effect snows right now. Sitting at 6.3” overall. Hoping the next band swings through overnight for another couple inches.
  4. The band really getting its act together now. Probably some 2-3 inch per hour rates in there. My backyard went from 3 inches with the system to a total of 5.7” now. Still snowing but band is drifting East.
  5. Some impressive totals for a Veterans Day storm. 287 NOUS43 KIWX 120129 PNSIWX INZ003>009-012>018-020-022>027-032>034-MIZ077>081-OHZ001-002-004-005-015- 016-024-025-121329- Public Information Statement National Weather Service Northern Indiana 829 PM EST Mon Nov 11 2019 ...SNOWFALL REPORTS THROUGH 8PM EST 11 NOVEMBER...

  6. Moderate snow at the moment. Hoping the band stops its eastward progression and becomes stationary.
  7. Lake effect band has come ashore in St. Joseph, MI.
  8. Latest AFD from IWX: Current expectations are for decent inland penetration of banding tonight given strong northerly flow connected in with long axis of Lake Michigan and Lake Superior. With that said, hard to say if/where banding will hold in for a decent time for counties just south and east of the Winter Storm Warning (Elkhart/Kosciusko/Marshall/Fulton IN/Starke). Reduced visibilities, cold sfc temps, and additional accums will likely allow at least advisory level impacts to persist beyond the current 05z expiration in these counties. An upgrade to warning cannot be ruled out in Marshall/Starke/Elkhart counties if the southern end of more dominant band settles in for a time. Much higher confidence for additional 6" plus snow amounts and intense 1-2" snowfall rates in areas currently under a Winter Storm Warning. Latest guidance continues to suggest Berrien, far western Cass MI and St Joseph IN in line for longest duration in intense lake plume where localized totals will likely exceed a foot. Winds will also pick up on the western fringe which could create some blowing/drifting.
  9. About 3" here. Now for the lake effect to set up. Expecting another 4 to 6 IMBY tonight. Possibly more if the band becomes stationary overhead. I'll post those updates and pictures in the lake effect thread. Absolutely fantastic for mid-November.
  10. Best snows coming down now here. About 1.3 inches so far. The ducks aren’t thrilled.
  11. HRRR showing poundtown for Berrien Co, MI and St. Joseph County, IN overnight. Single band that wobbles for about 12 hours.
  12. A fun graphical interpretation of the event early next week from the TV station I work at.
  13. In light of what appears to be a potentially impressive lake effect event in parts of the Great Lakes early next week I figured now is a good time to start up the region's lake effect thread for the winter. IWX hinting at the event beginning Monday.
  14. Normally I love lake enhancement on this side of the lake in Indiana, but, as modeled, the wind off the "warm" lake keeps precip as rain here in South Bend. Oof. Oh well, it is October after all. I'll enjoy my rain/snow mix.
