  1. Everything is possible. Louisville had freezing rain the other day with ground temps around 17.
  2. I think the last NW shift was a glitch, because it came back SE on the next run. It's expected to start in 5 hours. We are really entering the nowcast portion of the event. Time to start watching the pressure falls and where things establish and move.
  3. Our truly exciting weather events are few and far between... But there is a lot of beer here...
  4. I have a huge problem with this. We won't get weather models and a ton of other stuff. This forum would cease to exist and Skywarn as a function would also cease to exist as well. Want to know when the tornado is coming, look up. People with their big mouths don't actually understand the cascading effects of such a drastic change.
  5. I think this is our jackpot storm. Yes, we are normally lacking in solid snowfall events. It's tough for us to get more than 3-4" at any point. I just hope the end of this week doesn't bring a crippling ice storm.
  6. ILN Warning for here says 5-8, but the ILN graphic says 6-9... You would think those should agree with each other.
  7. Is that Northern IN or fringe of ILN CWA? I know the criteria is different the further North you go.
  8. For my area, most of the recent ones. I really has been spot on since the cold and the snow hit here.
  9. Because it has performed better recently.
  10. I think its close to that. The first 2/3rds of our winter was awful. Glad we are gaining some back.
  11. NKY at the airport got to 9.something due to mesoscale banding. I got 5 at my house, in NW Hamilton County.
  12. GFS has been better for us with last few storms. Euro has been folding to GFS in the end.
  13. It’s been 10 years since we have seen a double digit snowfall. It will likely be another 10 before we see another one. I hope this happens as modeled. I am just happy the last part of winter this season has been this good.
  14. There’s a bug in the national map that is causing some issues. Last time it looked like ILN had dropped theirs and they had not.
  15. That’s a rarity down there. Someone posted elsewhere that his wife has only seen snow 3 times in her life.
  16. ILN just issued a Winter Storm Watch for its CWA! https://forecast.weather.gov/wwamap/wwatxtget.php?cwa=iln&wwa=winter storm watch
  17. Nope - ILN is by far the slowest. We just call it the donut hole - when everyone else has already issued theirs.
  18. Doesn't even kick in until end of the weekend. Talk about jumping the gun...
  19. 12z GFS seems to be drying out some with the Southern portion of the storm. The Snow and ice totals are about half of what they used to be. They are 1/3rd from 12 hours ago. Not sure on that one. If the GFS is acting like the NAM or what's up with that. It does better though, without the random tongue of missing precip.
  20. NAM looks like it's still having issues with the snow to ice line in NKY. The 540 thickness line goes North to almost the Ohio River before moving South again. That would create mixing issues here for sure. It's definitely showing issues with the Ice/Snow line as the event unfolds.
  21. Got it. Have been there many times. My Dad's Fiancée is from New Albany. I bought a truck many years ago from a guy in Floyds Knobs.
  22. Where near Louisville did you grow up? Most of my Dad's family is from Louisville. Actually, the majority of my neighbors have snowblowers. Only a couple do not, and we clear their driveways since they are older.
  23. I didn’t even bother. Got out the snowblower at 7am and cleared it all at once.
  24. They issued this MD overnight here, for snowfall rates of 1-3”/hr, due to mesoscale banding. https://www.spc.noaa.gov/products/md/md0066.html snowfall across the area is 5-10 inches, with the official report from KCVG coming in at 9.8”
  25. We were supposed to get 4”. So far we have 8” and it’s still snowing. Overachiever...
