    If anyone has specific LOT centric questions on forecast stuff from today, ask away and I'll try to reply a bit later.

    Apologies for the lack of a more in depth meteorological dissertation in the AFD lol - just less and less time available for us on days like this.

    Hi, first time long time. What speeds do you think you'll reach on the road driving into LOT on snowy surfaces and will it be a repeat of the other afternoon with large parachutes falling from the sky under 35-40dbz but struggling to accumulate? Thanks, I'll hang up and listen.

    I’ve been at the point for years now that the only things that excite/interest me snowfall wise are big dogs (or at least medium dogs), record/near record occurrences, and abnormal/significant conditions. This one will be none of the aforementioned most likely, so overall interest is low.

    However, looks like a solid 2-5”/4-7” kind of situation from SE to NW across the area, with lower amounts near the lake and downtown.


    Or parties on I-355

    Every storm is different and you may very well be right, but the GFS/GEFS has been a bit too amped at this range with southwest type systems at this range over the past few winters. It's gonna be close and I feel better out here than I would in the city. The EPS mean SLP track has also jogged NW some vs. previous cycles.

    12z Euro... the only gripe I have with this run is the defo zone across eastern Iowa is rather weak-looking considering there is a 978 mb low over central IL.


    850mb and sfc low are occluding so you're losing your moisture advection into the CCB back that ways. 

    Chicago area continues to look like a 4-8"ish event of cement off 1"+ of QPF.

    uh, are we restricting this strictly to severe thunderstorms? Minnesota and Wisconsin may receive anywhere from 0-15'' on the back side (could bust). All in 6-8 hours with thundersnow likely.
