Northern Ohio Obs/Discussion Part 2

Recommended Posts

Flipped to all snow here in Strongsville. Already accumulating in the mulch and on the cars. Temp got down to 29 before rain switched to a brief mix. All surfaces are quite icy out there. Looking at about 6–8" here. Excited for the first white Christmas in white seems like forever.

Merry Christmas! What an awesome morning with over 10” now. Lake effect is starting to pick up. Hopefully we can cash in for awhile before the wind direction changes.

Merry Christmas!   Perfect winter wonderland out there   I've got a depth of 11" on the deck.  Looks to have been a widespread event , with even west side areas seeing almost a foot.  Should add more throughout the day.

A little over 10” here so far, maybe will get another fluffy inch or so through the evening with more to my north. This stuff falling right now is incredibly high ratio I’m sure it’s 30-40:1.

Looks like there was a good amount of blowing and drifting on whatever fell yesterday and last night.   Difficult to get an accurate measurement, but average of 4.5"  new.  Storm total 15.5".  Depth on the deck is right at 15". 

Curious to see the updated totals from CLE.  South Euclid already had 16" early yesterday.

Glad to see everyone cashing in. We're right around 2' here south of Buffalo with another foot expected.

Awesome, it looked like you were in the bullseye when I checked a few days ago.  I'll have to check out the webcam!

Picked up a quick 1.5" this morning. This is definitely one of the best December's I can remember for snowfall... right around 50" on the season now. Hard to believe CLE is only at 23" but they've always had snowfall measuring issues.

It's been an incredible December, and lake erie isn't even frozen yet.  Might be a quiet next week or so, but we'll still have chances for lake effect later into the season than typical.

Winter doldrums coming to an end it looks like... although nothing that exciting on the horizon. Outside of the limited sun over the weekend it seems like we've had perpetual overcast with temps in the 30's for weeks now.

Ya was hoping to kick up some lake effect with the arctic front this weekend, but not sure that'll pan out.  Sure has been a quiet January after a rocking December.  Hopefully the last half of the month is more active.

Nice to see the snow again, with several chances the next few days.  Hopefully we can get a favorable wind direction.

I've got 3.5" on the deck from yesterday afternoon through this morning.   Looks like another chance for decent snow Tuesday night.

Good to have snow cover again. That was quite a long and boring stretch of weather. Pretty rare to have the lake wide open in mid-January. Hopefully we can get a decent lake effect event in at some point.

the last 3 weeks have been crap,  2 13  inch snowfalls that lasted basically 2 days on the ground in december,  the medium range uncertain with high chance of more 38 degree rainers and finally no sustained cold to keep lake erie ice free and open for lake effect and we get so much of a west wind that it all hits erie -__-

Another 1.25 last night, and should be another round of more substantial snow tonight.  

Locally,  have no complaints about this winter so far.   We have just been missing sustained arctic cold, but it's been cold enough for snow majority of the time.

After the last couple of seasons no reason to complain on this end. Tonight is interesting... lots of moisture to work with a favorable flow albeit short duration. Wouldn't be surprised to see 3-5".

I'll assume you had a few beers before writing this :). We had 2 of the largest synoptic storms we've had in years in December. Snowcover didn't hang around that long in your area near the lakeshore but that's the way it goes with marginal temps. You actually don't want sustained cold if you want lake erie to remain ice free. A west wind is really ideal for lake county -- but the past couple of days have favored northern Erie county in PA with a west southwest flow.

Looks like another couple of inches of snow tonight -- 2-3"  possibly. Nice to have snow cover again. Next week is looking more interesting. A low tracking along the Ohio River is usually good for the northern third of Ohio. Still a long ways out but a blend of the model suite would be ideal.
