    Was he the replacement for Joe Holbrook? We lost him 3 yrs ago at the age of 87. Grew up watching him on ch10 and Jim Ganahl & Ben Gelber on ch4.

    November 15-16 Storm Potential

    I think we topped out very close to a full half inch of freezing rain here on the SE side of Dayton, which should have been a major winter storm, but... I can't really remember the last time we had this much ice since Feb of '94 (1.5" then).

    November 15-16 Storm Potential

    Yea same IMBY, 0.25" to maybe 1/3" of ice, we've had snow in the air on and off over the past week at 38 degrees, then yesterday low of 18 high of 29 with the first winter storm of the season for SW Ohio and it RAINS!!!

    Northern Ohio Obs/Discussion Part 2

    I'm coming up to the SW CLE area this weekend to fish for Steelhead in the Rocky River with my brother-in-law, not sure I'm going to be able to dress warm enough (since it was near 90 just a few weeks ago)!

    List your top 5 winter storms

    I posted this in a thread somewhere in here a couple years ago, but can't find it, oh well here it goes again: 1. Either Jan of '67 or '68, NW corner of Athens Co, OH, we got 28" of heavy wet snow in 24hrs. When it got cold at night it froze the top 6" so hard you could walk in top of it, us kids carved out big chunks and made igloos. 2. Last week of Feb '80, again in the NW corner of Athens Co, OH, picked up 15" in five hours and it wasn't predicted (forecast was partly cloudy, chance of showers high of 38)! I got snowed in at my college studying for a test and I missed seeing as I was in my buddies dorm room, went to go home and my hand-me-down boat of a Chrysler New Yorker was a lump in the snow! 3. March '08 storm SE side of Dayton, OH, ended up with about 16" over two days. 4. Dec '04 storm, 12" in one day in Dayton no ice or sleet, 2ft of fell 1 county west of me in that storm and 1.5" of ice 1 county SE! 5. Jan 96' tie with Jan '99, the '96 storm buried everyone in the Dayton are in all directions with a foot or more, I got about 6" IMBY for a major bust, buddy of mine's dad got 40" in Lucusville in Ross county). The '99 storm was a foot of snow with almost 2" of ice/sleet pilled on top that ruined it. PS - The Blizzard of '78 was a miss for SE Ohio at the time, warmed up with heavy rain over night, finished with wind blown fluff after the cold wave that day (we already had about 2ft of compressed on the ground at the time from dozens of snows through that winter).

    Sept-Oct heavy rain and Flooding threat

    Topping out at 3.63" IMBY, looks like very light showers left for this afternoon. ILN went with 4-6" for most of SW Ohio on Friday (with locally heavier amounts in bands) so I'd say close enough for government work. Oxford just north of Cincy got 4" Thursday from storms ahead of this system, so I think they topped out near 8" for the past 4 days.

    Home Personal Weather Station & WU

    Finally success! Found this thread and turns out it was a firmware issue with Ambient Weather, not WU: https://www.wxforum.net/index.php?topic=34499.0 Disabled the Weathercloud account that was interfering with WU's data, and it works perfect now! Here's my station: https://www.wunderground.com/personal-weather-station/dashboard?ID=KOHBELLB15

    2018 Short to Medium Range Severe Thread

    About a county or 2 just north of Champaign is getting crushed with over a half foot of rain from training storms this morning and still dumping it: http://www.iweathernet.com/total-rainfall-map-24-hours-to-72-hours set the pull-down to the past 12 hours, those poor people!

    Home Personal Weather Station & WU

    Whoa, I randomly checked my site and all of a sudden at 6am this morning (like you said) it started working! Its been online almost 3 weeks now, no rhyme or reason??? EDIT: And poof 7 hours later it quit again, and nothing since...
  10. Hey all, was reviewing PWS's on this site recently: https://www.weatherstationadvisor.com/ and decided to get the Ambient Weather WS-2902A one that supports WiFi. Installed the sensor out in the middle of my backyard and got it working on Ambient's with their phone app and on their website just fine (worked perfect first try) and also the Weather Cloud site, but cannot get it to show up on WeatherUnderground. Went through all of the FAQs and the closest one to my problem was to make sure the TOD clock on the 2902 is exactly right with your time zone and it is, still no luck. It did connect for like 1 second last Friday night on its own about midnight, but nothing for a week before that, and no updates since. Here's my station ID: McB_WS_2902 KOHBELLB15 if you guys happened to see it on the WU maps with PWS's enabled. Any hints will be greatly appreciated!

    Apr. 2-4 Severe Threat

    We just had TWO separate Tornado Warnings to shelter immediately here at my office just south of WPAFB during the past hour!
  13. Radar doughnut hole from h3ll finally filled in IMBY after its been raining and snowing a county or 2 away in all directions for the past 4 hours! kind of odd watching a Snow Storm in April! Looks like it went from nothing to at least moderate snow in less than 10 mins, about 34 degrees so nothing sticking yet.
