    Question about Holland Tulip Festival... Vacation has been planned to come for the Tulip Festival. With what seems like a slow start to spring, anything I should be aware of? We are going for an early morning photo tour before it opens so we have concerns about the development of the tulips.
  2. March 23-24 Winter Storm

    The same for Kokomo. Not even one stray one.
  3. Agreed. I laughed then cried when I see there is a mid-Atlantic snowstorm possibly in the cards next week. Sheesh...
  4. It’s all but over here in north central Indiana. Snow all but gone with just the largest parking lot piles still hanging on. Heavy rains in the forecast the next two weeks. No signs it will turn cold enough for any meaningful snow. .
  5. The snowpack if I can call it that was pretty fragile here. Today's modest temperatures and partly cloudy sky killed all but the man-made piles.

    If the 6z NAM is to be believed, I'm good for two 3" rounds of snow. But the reality is the has become a complete joke of a winter and model runs and forecasting. I say bring on Morch.

    I've heard there are differences between "turning dry" and "starting dry" in regards to spring/summer. It seems we are already dry so what does that mean going forward?
  8. Speaking for myself, the past two winters have been at 25% of average for snowfall. Even before that, there have been a lot of misses. I think the GHD 2011 storm was the start of a string of heartbreaks. Add in the complete model mayhem even 48 hours out and it all just grinds my gears. Model updates and poor winters have many of us unsure of their biases. It's been 11 years since I have had a double-digit snowfall. I just want something to track and verify and for it to not melt a few days later.

    Some thoughts from forecaster Bill McMillan from IndyWX who is bullish for the upcoming period... http://indywx.com/2018/01/25/potential-on-the-table-for-a-spectacular-period-of-winter-weather/

    12Z GFS Please...
  11. ZZZZzzzzzzzz for the remaining month of January seems likely. I'd love to see some warm 50's and sun before what I hope is a return to winter come February.
  12. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Normally I follow storms because I enjoy the snow. This one was an exception. I was part of a group of amateur radio operators supporting an orienteering race in Hoosier National Forest for 250 racers. This is a 48-hour continuous race. The race went on as scheduled but conditions getting to our site with gear was not fun. Besides the white-knuckle drive on Friday, we got a GMC 4x4 truck and trailer stuck in two holes at the same time. Luckily a tow strap and another vehicle got us out. The good news is racers completed the first leg of race in the first 24 hours. Usually, stragglers (newbies) take all 48 hours. This allowed my small crew to bail early ahead of the next clipper. Yay!

  14. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    I'd guess the 3K is amped up on sleet.
  15. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    This is out to hour 60 with the sleet removed.
