    Bellbrook...just Southeast of Dayton
  1. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    As of 1:15 I can say we have had nothing but rain here in the Dayton area...currently hovering in the 34 degree range. Don't take rain/snow/mixed radar maps as gospel.

    For Ohio...the track of the surface low is perfect for a big dog. The question becomes....how quickly will the cold air get pulled in once the cold front passes. May not know for a day or two....or even more...if the track now holds. IF there was antecedent cold air prior to the storm....much more certain of snow...and not ice/sleet/rain.

    So...as we get closer...is the seasonal trend happening again? What was west....is now southeast? Looks like NAM, GFS, GEM and now EURO are on the southeast envelope of what we have been following the last several days. UKMET is now the lone west wolf?

    "Who is Ji?" Ji is a legendary Mid Atlantic poster. Known for being as pessimistic as anyone who ever trolled a weatherboard. Over the years....his infamous declaration that "WINTER IS OVER" is one of legends. Often parodied...never duplicated. We should be honored such royalty stopped by these parts. LOL!!!!!

    Hey Buck....what does the Euro have for Dayton? You talked about the NW gradient....how about us in the Western part of the state? Thanks.

    And crazy Uncle Joe....who crowed about his early identification of the coming "Arcticgeddon"....and lately been harping on the coming 3 week long "Thawgeddon" is now doing some quick backtracking.... Joe Bastardi‏Verified account @BigJoeBastardi 1h1 hour ago More Convection pulling back into western Indian Ocean more indicative of phase 2 ( cold for US) and a bust on the Euro which from Jan 1st had this well into phase 3 BOMM as on Jan 6 had strong phase 2 still. Gives credence to renewed strong cold day 6-10

    I have warned a long time snow enthusiast of mine that we have all seen this play out before....many, many time before. Don't fall for the trap. This will be an Indiana to Michigan storm. Ohioans should not get the slightest bit excited...if they want to avoid a later meltdown. The GFS is a cruel invention of diabolical masochists from north of the border...designed to. initially titillate...and then destroy those living in the Buckeye state in winter.

    The European ensembles put the average placement in West Virginia instead of NW Ohio.....still a lot to be decided...

    Tech....there is a map on the January thread that shows how many days since the last WSW issued office by office for the NWS. Sadly..its been almost 700 days since we {ILN} have had one. {698 as of today}

    Just returned from my daily early morning walk in the country just southeast of Dayton. Started snowing half way through the walk. 4 degrees and pixie dust snow. Probably a quarter inch new stuff. Calm and the most quiet, enjoyable walk in many a moon. This is why I love snow and winter!

    "Likely to warm up after the 28th"......ah.....NOT!

    I can tell you on Christmas day 1983 we had no snow cover per see in Dayton and Indianapolis and the temperatures never got warmer than 6 or 7 below zero. My wife and I drove from Dayton to Indy to celebrate Christmas at my parents. Winds were ferocious all day too. To this day...I have never experienced such a bitter cold feel. My face felt like it was being sand papered as I filled the gas tank.

    Not that I believe this til it happens...but the 12 Z Euro snow maps for Christmas day. All of this falls on Christmas day for Ohio

    About as big a swing in the models in the long range as I can remember. From the heavens to hell. When you see such huge temp range across the country...you can be sure the arctic air is in the west and the summer in the east/southeast. Bah-humbug!

    The first snow flakes of the season started here in Bellbrook...just southeast of Dayton just after 7 this morning (Saturday 10/28). Always a joyful thing to see....and before Halloween. Now that has me geeked!
