    February 23-25th Winter Storm

    Yeah, we'll see as the week progresses. The clown maps make me jealous lol, but if the current winter pattern continues could be a late winter/early spring outbreak for the sub this year. We're due.

    February 17th, 2019 Snow Event

    I'm going to go with 3-4 here. Looks like it could mix just to my south but if we can stay cold enough

  7. All you needed to do was start event threads, we'd all have a Bo snow pack by now lol.

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    I don't know about up there but around here AEP has been very aggressive over the last 5 years trimming trees back from power lines.
  9. My grade for this winter is slowly dropping from a B-. It's only getting a B because I'm grading on the curve of the last 5 or 6 years lol. We've had a couple nice events of 3-5 and one over 8 inches and a decent over performing ice event but it's this pesky cold -snow - torch - melt - rain back to cold sequence that's really getting old. Haven't been able to hold onto a snow pack at all (yeah my climo isn't the best for that but at least give me 14 days!). If I can go out with at least one more warning criteria snow the curve may just get it to an A, but it's gonna have to be a good one. Really not looking forward to a potential flooding spring, there's a very saturated water table around here.

    February 14th-16th Winter Storm Threat

    Not Thunders fault, models have been crap this year outside 24-48 hours. GFS is trying to bring something back the 16th-20th lol.

    NE IN, NW OH, far SEMI may be getting the worse of the ice overnight, possible 1 inch amounts. Nice moisture plume should over run the area in the next 4-6 hours with sub freezing surface temps. I'd be real concerned for some severe icing in those areas.

    Winter Storm - February 11-13, 2019

    We got lucky a couple weeks ago. We got .25 to .3 with some strong winds right on the tail. Fortunately those winds only lasted an hour or less. I sincerely hope, with some of the modeled accretion rates, y'all don't get hammered. It's one thing to get paralyzed by a 20 inch 50 mph blizzard but a .5 to 1.0 inch ice storm with 30-40 mph winds really sucks.

    From an aviation perspective this is a fairly dangerous setup that has caught many pilots off guard. There is a line from Central IL through N/Central IN that has a fairly low level melting layer above a much lower level freezing layer, roughly 2k-5k feet, that can catch an unprepared pilot off guard. You normally encounter these setups much higher but this setup is lower and has/can present issues.
