  1. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    Quite the winter storm; heavy showers and storms on the warm front followed by a dry slot where the sun came out and spring arrived. Then a thunderstorm with small hail as the cold front passed. Woke up this morning to snow falling with perhaps an inch out there. Not bad.
  2. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    And that's bullish. It is what is. Hopefully,the twin cities folks make out.
  3. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    Odd. Doesn't really fit the profile of these type of storms.
  4. I think that's going to be early Feb. .....mid Feb back in the freezer
  5. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    Call me when the Euro has the low over Ft Wayne....
  6. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    Minneapolis special.....hoping for a backwash inch here.
  7. January 14-15th Clipper System

    Another solid 1.5 " overnight. Easily over 5 " total at this point. Looking like another lake band may work through. Enjoyable long duration event, and well handled by LOT. Though I think Chicago Storm may have been the first to peg it in these parts.
  8. January 14-15th Clipper System

    Yup. Would be nice if we could get the lake involved.
  9. January 14-15th Clipper System

    Forecast seems right on track. Guessing a solid 3" of powder and still snowing lightly.
  10. January 14-15th Clipper System

    Pretty obvious ratios are better than prior events based on eye test.....
  11. January 14-15th Clipper System

    Gun shy until they can see flake size/ratios ....can't blame 'em.
  12. January 14-15th Clipper System

    That's a big number from you.
  13. January 14-15th Clipper System

    LOT goes 3-6 inch long duration fall, yet no WWA. Not that I need a designation to make me happy in the snowfall game. Surprising, as I thought there were criteria for these events. Would be surprised if that sticks if models hold sway, particularly with a rush period involved-though it maybe tempered by the holiday. Irregardless, nice trends overnight. Note: quad cities cites reasoning on holding off WWA while MKX hoisted one, though they are expecting higher amounts. Makes sense to see the 12Z suite I suppose.

    Good stuff. You know it's a tough winter when you can only count on 12:1 ratios in this type of air mass. Would love to hear your take on how the last two weeks of January play out in the medium range thread. A lot of consternation that we are headed for an extended period of mild dry weather in the heart of winter.
