  1. I'm ahead of 81% of the places, yet the (2) things I wanted outta this winter (Warning level storms and dbl digit depths) continue to elude..go figure
  2. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    ..and the beat goes on, and on, and on
  3. Meteor over lower Michigan

    Sure did, my wife's uncle was walking in the city and got knocked off his feet by the shockwave! And yes, they found a chunk and included bits of it in the Olymic Gold Medals as a special rememberance for their winter Olympics in 2014. Good thing it didn't come in at a steeper approach causing a greater explosion like the 1908 event. Tho that was believed to be a small Comet
  4. You do realize this is the complaints and whining thread, right??
  5. January 20-22nd Winter Storm

    We just did that 4 days ago............we don't really need to push the re-set button again so soon, but Nina's are known for it, aren't they. IF it follows this season's MO and trends south, it'll end up another weak sauce WWA event. Looks to be a lose-lose situation. This split flow with "I think I can, I think I can" phasing is pathetic
  6. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    And per my airport ASOS, it was the heaviest ever since I've been paying attention to it. This is the first time I've ever seen it register +SN which means it was actually more like ++SN Sadly, I'd left town to skate my way to the office, but it was bliz conditions around BC for the first 20 or so miles. Cars even on surface streets crawling at 25 mph due to the layer of ZR under the snow. WWA extended to 7 pm prolly shoulda been upgraded. GRR's Afd even said as much, yet they don't. What a bunch of chumps. Yet, they'll upgrade for 4" of fluff effect snow off the lake.

    Almost doubled the total for mby..
  8. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    I just wanna see these rates the short-range Canadien is flashing over mby!

    IWX Adding to concerns, the 12Z NAM develops a bullseye of QPF over our east-central CWA in response to the enhanced forcing in the right entrance region of a strengthening 300MB Jet between 9-15Z, which stretches over northern Lower Michigan/Ontario/Quebec. The enhanced upper level divergence works to tilt our trough negatively and contract (strengthen) the frontal zone across our area. Looking at a cross section through the frontal zone, we see a brief period of decent instability/CSI. If it occurs, this will favor the development of heavier bands of snow, which supports the idea of the NAM`s increase in QPF (including the FWA area). Overall, however the time the ingredients come together is pretty short-lived, and don`t expect too much in the way of additional ice accumulations beyond those forecasted at this point. Furthermore, thinking it will largely be more snow/sleet than any freezing rain at the times of greatest instability. In the end, put 2-3" snow in the forecast for the eastern half of the advisory given the potential. (we'll see if the NAM has a clue..)

    More like leaping westward per some MESO models. NAM12k trending amped with warning snow streak now for mby..this is some wacked sh*t
  11. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    The model bouncing is a joke tbh. Blame it on sampling or w/e but consistency is lacking big time imho
  12. January 11-13 Winter Storm

    Thanks - you helped out..hehehe We've bantered about how/why that combo is such an elusive beast. This wild season might just be the one to get 'er done
  13. January 6-8 Snow/Ice/Rain

    Just once in 10 yrs I'd like to see that under-achieve, lol
  14. January 2018 Discussion

    What's poor about 2 days? Hehehe....really tho, as discussed in that other forum, sometimes the warning issued was for ice only, so that's yet another misleading aspect of the map. One based solely on synoptic snows of warned criteria would be more telling
  15. January 6-8 Snow/Ice/Rain

    0z better or worse wrt warm nose extent? RGEM looks nice, hoping it's got my back on this one. Want to touch 7" depth one more time before mega-melt-off ensues
