    Is next winter looking like a disaster?

    Funny how people who you never hear mention weather will find a way to tell you how devastatingly cold and snowy the upcoming winter will be. They have to hear that somewhere. Ill admit though, I hope they’re right.

  3. Lol, people posting pictures at night. Yes, snow can and will stick to roads in March, but to act like there’s no difference due to sun angle is just plain silly. Anything remotely dark is sitting there absorbing radiation during the daylight hours at amuch higher rate than in Dec/Jan. Because of that you have to have good rates and/or cold temps to get/keep roads snow covered. You get light snow and 30 degrees in Jan and you will get/keep snow cover on hard surfaces, easy, even during daylight hours. March, not likely. So anybody saying that sun angle doesn’t matter isn’t being truthful. We all know it matters. It’s not prohibitive, but it matters.

    It would be a huge difference. Sun angle at my house on Jan 10 is about 29 degrees. On March 10 it’s about 46 degrees. That’s a lot and I suspect it’s not a linear relationship.

    It's brutal in Winchester (KOKV). 34/16. I hear they are doing heat rescues. And it's cloudy.

    February 19-20th Threat - STORM MODE

    Saw mention of the freezing rain accumulation with temps near freezing .......... no, it won't accumulate on roads, or even hard surfaces many times, but as we saw out here last week out here, it can accumulate easily on trees and power lines. We had temps right around the 30-32 degree mark (KOKV reported 32 the whole time) and ice was able to accumulate to 1/3 - 1/2" on trees and power lines. Many trees down and thousands without power for over 24 hours. So hopefully when we transition it's to sleet then to rain.

    To illustrate the dangers of using snow maps, and perhaps the NAM, the 6z NAM snow map has 20” of snow in Louisville (where my father lives). His forecast is for snow quickly changing to rain with a max of 1” of snow. I think it’s better to use total precip and temp profiles than those maps.
