    February 23-25th Winter Storm

    I've never seen these kinds of colors on a TT map before... holy cow
  4. This. It's hard not to be disappointed as we almost every big event (or even the medium ones) slide past us, but then I remember that in the mere ten years I've lived here, I've experienced two of Chicago's top 5 snowstorms and one of her snowiest winters ever, and that helps put everything into perspective.
  5. Wrong. That blizzard currently being depicted for next weekend is OURS, my friend... only no one knows it yet. /s

    Honestly, I don't care what happens as long as the snowstorm doesn't just disappear from one run to the next. Just give us a high-end forecastable event to play around with for a few days

    Backside??? No no no... I am now activating the Chicago snow magnet. This is the big one of the season

    Winter 2018-19 Medium/Long Range Discussion

    Anyone even see the 06z run of the FV3 in the Sunday Morning time frame? (yes... I know it has a 0% chance of ever even showing up again, let alone actually happening but it's still some nice eye candy)
  9. God. "The storm missed the city". I'm sorry but that is a hot, steaming load of bullsh*t. Anyone who's ever seen a forecast model run knows that any model run can miss something at much less than five days out. that caption literally preys on the ignorance of non-weather enthusiasts. The FV3 might not be the greatest model , but it's definitely not that much worse than the other models either.
  10. I have to admit that the ice-covered trees/sunny blue sky combination was absolutely spectacular. My winter went from B to B+ just because of this. It looked like something out of a sci-fi video game.

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    Just lost power for a minute or two. Fun.
  12. Reflecting this, I'd probably give this winter a solid B. Even if we haven't had a big dog yet, the novelty has yet to wear off (seriously though... two ice storm warnings in two weeks? After not having any for a decade or something?) Still hoping for the slightly bigger dog around here, because so far we haven't more than five inches from a single snowfall (including the November blizzard, something like 4.8 inches IIRC) but I'm patient/confident that we'll get at least another shot or two.

    February 14th-16th Winter Storm Threat

    I agree. One of the things I've noticed about this year is that things that appear in the mid range actually happen in some capacity. This storm didn't even "trend" worse- it literally ceased to be modeled. The GEM is the one model that hung onto the idea a little longer.

    I think we should wait at least until the passage of tonight's event before writing this one off entirely...
