  1. Any inkling on November? Will we freeze again?
  2. Lmao, Snow at Times? Wtf does that even mean?
  3. This will be my 2nd. Last year I lived in Waukesha. Now I'm on the Greenfield/Milwaukee border. Much more convenient to commute to the airport.
  4. Thanks guys. I guess it's the opposite of what I thought. I always thought an east-based -NAO would put the trough axis too far east for here. Angrysummons - I don't know 2 out of 3 of those storms you mentioned. I will have to look at the January 1978 one on NARR.
  5. Ok thanks, that makes sense. Well, hopefully we can have a more active pattern this year than last lol.
  6. Question for you guys; as an East Coast native, I'm wondering how much a -NAO matters for getting snow here? I'm guessing it doesn't matter as much and could even be a detriment if it's east-based?
  7. I'm surprised at how poorly the Euro handled this system. I guess I'll have to start taking the GFS more seriously which means something significant could be brewing for the end of the week.
  8. Yep, I'm here at the airport now. Looks like it will be predominantly rain tonight.
  9. Lol, alright well, I was on the NE side of town I can't imagine another part of town getting more seeing as there was an E-W gradient. That total from Thomaston looks right.
  10. Just some MKE stats for you guys... Today is the sixth day in the last eight in which the high temperature failed to get above 30F. As of yesterday's climo report, we are running a remarkable -12.7F departure for the month. On Tuesday, our high of 19F shattered the record for lowest high temperature for the date by 4F. Also on Tuesday, we tied the record low for the date of 9F producing a -27 departure for the day. We have received 7.2" of snow through the first two weeks of the month, not sure where that ranks though.
  11. How close was April '97 to beating December '92? I assume April '97 would be 2nd?
  12. Don't know what that second sentence means but, no need to be a smartass. I know it's from NOAA I guess what I meant to ask was what's the exact web address of this particular product? It's cool, I've never seen it before.
  13. Oh ok cool. We have tons of problems with the wind sensor at MKE. It's always going out and then winds go missing which is not good when an ob. is transmitting. I think it goes out because our winds are always shifting around with the lake breeze and whatnot.
  14. By who? Do you know one of the ASOS technicians?
  15. Bitched and moaned my way to about 4" on untreated surfaces.
  16. Even when I move almost 1,000 miles the -NAO still screws me out of a snowstorm. Hilarious.
  17. Can anyone offer up a physics/dynamics explanation for why the storm trended south?
  18. Euro had a bump south today so it's possible. It will depend on that s/w crashing onshore in the PAC NW at the same time our storm is approaching. Maybe it will pump the ridge upstream enough for this to dig farther south?
  19. Any thoughts on ratios? That stuff a couple weeks ago had to be like 6:1. I'm guessing something similar in this case but maybe a bit better as omega looks good in the SGZ on NAM BUFKIT MKE sounding.
  20. I wonder if this will stick to the pavement? I know that people often fall for the fallacy of the "ground is too warm" myth, but it has been pretty darn warm lately and some of this will be falling during daylight too with a high sun angle, especially west of here.
